The only way to know one is suffering from brain cancer is through a proper test done by a doctor. Brain cancer is a really complicated and tough issue when it comes to being able to read the symptoms. Sometimes until one is dead it cannot be known that the person was suffering from brain cancer, like tumors of the pituitary gland.
The symptoms of brain tumors are very many and not they may not be specific to brain tumors. In the sense that the symptoms may be caused by some other illnesses. Like I told you in the beginning the only way to know for sure what is causing the symptoms is to undergo diagnostic testing.
The patient may feel the symptoms because the growing tumour in the brain may be encroaching upon and pushing itself beyong its own area to reside and thus it must be a hurdle for other healthy parts to perfrom their resprctive functions normally.
Some symptoms may also be a result of swelling in the brain caused by the tumor or inflammation surrounding it.
Some specific and definte symptoms of brain cancer include headache, weakness, feeling of clumsiness, difficulty in walking, and seizures.
Some symptoms of brain cancer are non specific but do exisit for the affected individual to experience. Sometimes it also happens theat they happen so slowly that people themselves or their family just misses to notice it in a sequence. ON the other hand sometimes the changes and symptoms come so suddetnly that it is almost like a shcok and the individual affected with it almost feels like he/she is undergoing a stroke.
Things like altered mental status – Difficulty in concentrating, memory lapse now and then, attention gets diverted, lack of alertness- the feeling ob being mentally alseep, Nausea, vomiting – more so during early mornings, experiencing abnormalities in vision, experiencing difficulty with speech with is very noticeable because its something we do not experience in our regular life at all, slow changes and deteriorating intellectual or emotional capacity.
Under these circumstances one should seek medical help. Accepted that headaches are thought to be one of the common symptoms of brain cancer, but they may not surface until the last stage of the disease. If any significant change in your headache pattern occurs, you should visit health care provider who may suggest further action.
