Brief Answer:
Brain tumor can not be transferred

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX XXXXXXX thanks for asking from HCM.


I can understand your concern. Brain tumor can not be transferred through mosquito bite. Even diseases like HIV, bacterial infection can not be transferred because mosquito saliva contains enzymes which kill HIV and bacteria.

Only few parasites and viruses like malaria, dengue can be transferred. Brain tumor is a totally different kind of pathology. It originates on its own (de novo) because of few known factors (radiation, genetic mutations) and most unknown factors. So don't worry at all.

Hope I solved your query. If any doubt, do let me know.
Thanks. Take care.
