Thanks for using the forum. I am happy to address your questions, and my answer will be based on the information you provided here. Please make sure you recognize that this forum is for educational purposes only, and it does not substitute for a formal office visit with a doctor.
Without the ability to examine and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of the symptoms is. However I will try to provide you with some useful information.
Do you know what type of tumor you have been diagnosed with? What were your symptoms?
There are some brain tumors that may change during pregnancy secondary to the fluid changes from blood volume and hormonal stimulation.
Depending on the location and type of tumor, contractions may be more painful secondary to increased intracranial pressure. Typically, we recommend that labor be as pain free as possible with perhaps manual assistance with the delivery during second stage of delivery.
Treatment options depend on the grade of the brain tumor. If low-grade, treatment is not urgent and should be delayed until after delivery. If it is a high-grade glioma, radiation may be an option. Chemotherapy is not recommended until AFTER delivery. In some instances, surgical resection may be an option.
I suggest you follow up with your neuro-oncologist to discuss your concerns. Ultimately, it depends on the type of tumor and its location within the central nervous system.
Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
