Brain Tumour Symptoms

Note: Were you looking for information about Brain Tumor Symptoms? Brain tumour symptoms is a common alternate spelling of brain tumor symptoms.
 
Whether or not a person develops brain tumor symptoms will depend on the tumor size, type, and location. These symptoms may be caused when a tumor presses on a nerve or damages a certain area of the brain. Symptoms may also be caused when the brain swells or fluid builds up within the skull. Common symptoms of a brain tumor include but are not limited to headaches; nausea; vomiting; and changes in speech, vision, or hearing.
 
Early brain tumor symptoms can be subtle or obvious, again depending on factors such as the size and location of the tumor. However, these symptoms may also be caused by common problems, such as a sinus infection or migraines.
 
In children, possible symptoms of a brain tumor include headaches, muscle twitching, and problems with balance or walking. As with adults, symptoms will depend on the tumor's location and size.
