Brain Tumors

A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain. Brain tumors can be benign or malignant. A benign tumor is non-cancerous and will not spread to other parts of the body. They tend to grow very slowly. A malignant tumor is cancerous and should be treated as soon as possible.

Learning you have a brain tumor can be frightening, but our team will be there to guide you and your family through every step of your treatment.

Warning Signs of a Brain Tumor

The earlier you have a brain tumor diagnosed, the better. The warning signs of a brain tumor vary depending on the type of tumor, and it may take some time for symptoms to occur. However, there are some general symptoms that you can look out for.

Some symptoms of a brain tumor include:

  • Severe headaches that worsen over time or wake you up from sleep
  • Gradual loss of feeling or strength in the arms or legs
  • Intractable nausea and/or vomiting
  • Balance issues
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Changes in personality
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Seizures

If you or a loved one start exhibiting these symptoms, you should see a medical professional as soon as possible. An imaging test such as a CT scan or MRI is necessary to officially diagnose a brain tumor.
