How Does A Brain Tumor Progress?
As a brain tumor grows, it will first affect the body functions controlled by the part of the brain where the tumor is located. This may result in movement difficulties, for example, if the tumor is located in the area of the brain that controls motor function.
If the tumor continues to grow, causing damage or swelling in the whole brain, the initial effects will become more pronounced, and effects on the entire body will begin to emerge.
Later-stage effects can include:
- Difficulty in moving or controlling movements
- Speech difficulties, including difficulties understanding speech
- Memory loss
- Loss of strength
- Impaired judgment
- Extreme changes in personality or mood swings
