8 Signs Of A Possible Brain Tumor

It is a pretty known fact that brain tumors come in all shapes and sizes. But what most people do not know is that so do their symptoms.

According to Theodore Schwartz, MD, a neurosurgeon with the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center, the key to a tumor’s symptoms really depends on its location. For instance, if your tumor is at that part of your brain that is in charge of your eyesight or your leg, you may exhibit symptoms such as blurry vision and limb weakness.

Every cell inside your brain can potentially form a tumor and since it is the brain that controls and interprets signals from every part of your body, the list of all possible tumor symptoms encompasses almost anything imaginable.

Nevertheless, there are symptoms and signs that are more common than others. Here are some of them.

8. Seizures

Seizures are often the first signs of trouble regardless of the type of tumor you have. The reason for this is that the irritation from the tumor makes the brain’s neurons fire uncontrollably which causes you to get abnormal movements. Just like tumors, seizures can take many forms. For some people, the jerking and flexing is confined to only one limb or just a part of the face while others experience whole body convulsions.
