Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.

Based on your description above, we know that your brother has a problem in the brain and has fits.

First of all, he needs to be started on anti-epileptic medications, with which his fits can be brought under control.

Next, you have mentioned that there is swelling in brain. One needs to identify the cause of swelling. The commonest cause of brain swelling is brain infection. We can confirm it with the help of MRI scan of brain.

Infection can be treated well with medications.
For the best treatment, you should consult and follow the advice of a neurologist.

Best wishes,
