What are the Main Major Symptoms of Brain Tumours?
A brain tumour is an accumulation or growth of abnormal cells in the brain. There are many types of brain tumours. Some are cancerous (Malignant) and some are Noncancerous (Benign). Some malignant tumours start in the brain, called Primary Brain Cancer, while in other cases, cancer spreads from another part of the body into the brain resulting in a Secondary Brain Tumour (Metastatic Brain Cancer).
There are many symptoms associated with brain tumours, but one person is not likely to have them all. These symptoms may also differ depending on the tumour’s size and location.
