Symptoms

The symptoms caused by a brain tumor vary depending on its type, size, location, and patient age. Some tumors do not cause symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage. Symptoms may include:

  • headaches (usually worse in the morning)
  • nausea and vomiting
  • changes in speech, vision, or hearing
  • problems balancing or walking
  • increasing head circumference, irritability, and developmental delay (for children)
  • changes in mood, personality, or ability to concentrate
  • problems with memory
  • muscle jerking or twitching (seizures or convulsions)
  • numbness or tingling in the arms or legs

Since these symptoms may be caused by conditions other than cancer, you should see your healthcare provider to determine the cause.
