Some Tumors are asymptomatic i.e. symptoms may not show up unless tumor becomes  large in size and starts pressing on or encroaching on other parts of your brain and keep them from functioning normally.

The symptoms of primary and metastatic Brain Tumor are similar. Swelling in the brain caused by the tumor or surrounding inflammation can also throw up some symptoms.

Common symptoms of Brain Tumor are:

  • Headache
  • Weakness
  • Clumsiness
  • Difficulty walking; loss of balance
  • Seizures

Other symptoms and signs include:

  • Altered mental status - changes in concentration, memory, attention or alertness
  • Nausea or vomiting, especially early in the morning
  • Abnormalities in vision; blurred vision
  • Headaches which are severe in the morning
  • Weakness or paralysis in one side of the body
  • Difficulty in thinking, speaking or recalling words
  • Gradual changes in intellectual or emotional capacity

In many people, the onset of these symptoms is very gradual and may be missed by both the person with the Brain Tumor and the family. Occasionally, these symptoms appear more rapidly and can be confused with symptoms of stroke. The only way to ascertain the reason behind these symptoms is to undergo diagnostic testing after consultation with your physician.
