What Are The Signs And Symptoms of Brain Tumor From Distinguished Neuro Surgeon Carmelo Cerrelli
In a brain tumour, cells grow abnormally, but this doesn’t mean a tumour is cancerous.
According to distinguished neuro surgeon Carmelo Cerrelli, the signs and symptoms of a brain tumor vary greatly and depend on the brain tumor’s size, location and rate of growth.
General symptoms include:

  • Headaches, which may be severe and may worsen with activity or in the early morning
  • Seizures: Motor seizures, also called convulsions, are sudden involuntary movements of a person’s muscles. People may experience different types of seizures, including myclonic and tonic-clonic (grand mal). Certain drugs can help prevent or control them.
  • Myclonic: Single or multiple muscle twitches, jerks, spasms
  • Tonic-Clonic (Grand Mal): Loss of consciousness and body tone, followed by twitching and relaxing muscles that are called contractions. Also loss of control of body functions.
  • A person may turn a shade of blue due to a short 30-second period of no breathing, after this type of seizure a person may be sleepy and experience a headache, confusion, weakness, numbness, and sore muscles.
  • Sensory: Change in sensation, vision, smell, and/or hearing without losing consciousness
  • Complex partial: May cause a loss of awareness or a partial or total loss of consciousness.
  • Personality or memory changes
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
Symptoms that may be specific to the location of the tumor include:
  • Pressure or headache near the tumor
  • Loss of balance and difficulty with fine motor skills is linked with a tumor in the cerebellum.
  • A tumor in the frontal lobe of the cerebrum can be associated with changes in judgment, including loss of initiative, sluggishness, and muscle weakness or paralysis.
  • Partial or complete loss of vision is caused by a tumor in the occipital lobe or temporal lobe of the cerebrum.
  • A tumor in the frontal and temporal lobe of cerebrum can develop changes in speech, hearing, memory, or emotional state, such as aggressiveness and problems understanding or retrieving words.
  • Altered perception of touch or pressure, arm or leg weakness on one side of the body, or confusion with left and right sides of the body are linked to a tumor in the frontal or parietal lobe of the cerebrum.
  • Inability to look upward can be caused by a pineal gland tumor.
  • Lactation, which is the secretion of breast milk and altered menstrual periods in women, and growth in hands and feet in adults are associated with a pituitary tumor.
  • Difficulty swallowing, facial weakness or numbness, or double vision is a symptom of a tumor in the brain stem.
  • Vision changes, including loss of part of the vision or double vision can be from a tumor in the temporal lobe, occipital lobe, or brain stem.
According to distinguished neuro surgeon Carmelo Cerrelli, if you are concerned about one or more of the signs or symptoms on this list, please consult a neuro surgeon.
