Recognizing the most common signs and symptoms associated with brain tumours can help in early diagnosis and treatment. Because there is no cure for brain tumours, early diagnosis and treatment provides the best chance for recovery.

Signs and symptoms can include:

  • Visual disturbance such as double or blurred vision
     
  • Weakness or paralysis
     
  • Personality changes
     
  • Morning nausea and vomiting
     
  • Dizziness or unsteadiness
     
  • Frequent headaches
     
  • Hearing impairment
     
  • Seizures

If you or someone you care about experiences any of these symptoms, please consult your doctor.
