How Is A Brain Tumor Detected?
Brain tumors do not always present recognizable symptoms in their early stages of growth, and when symptoms do present, they may vary depending on the location and type of tumor and its growth rate.
Some common general symptoms of brain tumors include:
- Headaches, especially when the patient has no history of headaches or the pattern or severity of headaches changes
- Nausea or vomiting that doesn’t have another obvious cause
- Difficulty swallowing
- Dizziness or problems with balance
- Difficulty concentrating
- Blurred vision, double vision, or loss of peripheral vision
- Hearing problems
- Numbness or tingling in the face
- Loss of strength or movement in arms or legs
- Confusion or disorientation
- Personality changes
