Brain Watch : Symptoms Of Brain Tumor

As with any others, brain tumour can be both cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). Unlike malignant ones, benign tumours grow slowly and never spread to other parts. But their increase in size interferes with mental and bodily functions. Here are some of the common symptoms of brain tumour:

• Limb weakness and numbness could be an indication of tumour in certain parts of the brain.

• Unsteady walking or imbalance could point to a tumour in the cerebellum.

• Blurred or loss of vision may occur if the optic nerve is compressed or swollen.

• Weakening of short or long term memory.

• Inability to understand or express may be due to tumours in certain parts of the brain.
