Brain Tumours

Brain Tumours - Symptoms


The symptoms may be generalised or localised.

Generalised symptoms are due to increased pressure exerted on the brain and include:

  • A recurring headache that is at its worse in the morning
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Increased drowsiness

Localised symptoms depend on the location of the tumour and include:

  • Progressive weakness or numbness in the arms or legs
  • Progressive difficulty with speech, hearing, concentration or vision, including double-vision
  • Memory loss or a change in memory
  • A significant change in personality or behaviour

Some of these symptoms may also be caused by other conditions besides brain tumours. It is therefore wise to seek a neurosurgical opinion should the symptoms persist.
