HI!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.The symptoms of brain tumors depend on tumor size, type, and location. Symptoms may be caused when a tumor presses on a nerve or damages a certain area of the brain. They also may be caused when the brain swells or fluid builds up within the skull. These are the most common symptoms of brain tumors:- Headaches (usually worse in the morning)
- Nausea or vomiting
- Changes in speech, vision, or hearing
- Problems balancing or walking
- 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.These symptoms are not sure signs of a brain tumor. Other conditions also could cause these problems.Only thorough examination of the patient,mri/ct scan of head coupled with biopsy of the tumour can finalize the diagnosis.
