Brain Tumor Symptoms

Brain Tumor SymptomsBrain tumor symptoms vary from patient to patient, depending on factors such as a patient’s health, age, and the type of brain cancer he or she has. While some common symptoms, such as headaches, can indicate numerous conditions besides cancer, many others, including difficulty with balance, are more telling and should be addressed without delay. Brain tumor symptoms commonly include one or more of the following:
  • New or more severe headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Vision problems
  • Hearing difficulties
  • Difficulty with balance and a loss of fine motor skills
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Changes in behavior or personality
  • Unexplained and prolonged fatigue
