Symptoms of a brain tumor are dependent on its type, size and location in the brain. Secondary symptoms can also be caused due to the tumor pushing on a nerve, swelling of the brain due to the blockage or buildup of fluid and damage to other parts of the brain.
THe most common symptoms of a brain tumor are:
- Headaches (usually stronger upon waking up)
- Changes in vision, speech or hearing
- Nausea and vomiting
- Inability to concentrate; memory loss
- Problems walking or maintaining balance
- Muscle spasms, seizures or convulsions
- Numbness or tingling in limbs
The symptoms of a brain tumor can often be caused by another health problem. Consult your physician for diagnosis and treatment if you have one or more of these symptoms.
