    What are the symptoms of a brain tumor?

    The following are the most common symptoms of a brain tumor. However, each person may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms vary depending on the size and location of tumor. Many symptoms are related to an increase in pressure in or around the brain. There is no spare space in the skull for anything except the delicate tissues of the brain and its fluid. Any tumor, extra tissue, or fluid can cause pressure on the brain and result in increased intracranial pressure (ICP), which may result from one or more of the ventricles that drain cerebral spinal fluid (CSF, the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord) becoming blocked and causing the fluid to be trapped in the brain. This increased ICP may cause the following:

    Headache

    Vomiting (usually in the morning)

    Nausea

    Personality changes

    Irritability

    Drowsiness

    Depression

    Decreased cardiac and respiratory function and, eventually, coma if not treated

    Symptoms of brain tumors in the cerebrum (outer part of the brain) may include:

    Symptoms caused by increased intracranial pressure (ICP)

    Seizures

    Visual changes

    Slurred speech

    Paralysis or weakness on half of the body or face

    Drowsiness and/or confusion

    Personality changes/impaired judgment

    Short-term memory loss

    Gait disturbances

    Communication problems

    Symptoms of brain tumors in the brainstem (base of brain) may include:

    Symptoms caused by increased intracranial pressure (ICP)

    Seizures

    Endocrine problems (diabetes and/or hormone regulation)

    Visual changes or double vision

    Headaches

    Paralysis of nerves/muscles of the face, or half of the body

    Respiratory changes

    Clumsy, uncoordinated walk

    Hearing loss

    Personality changes

    Symptoms of brain tumors in the cerebellum (back of brain) may include:

    Symptoms caused by increased intracranial pressure (ICP)

    Vomiting (usually occurs in the morning without nausea)

    Headache

    Uncoordinated muscle movements

    Problems walking

    The symptoms of a brain tumor may resemble other conditions or medical problems. Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis.
