Brain Tumors: Signs and Symptoms


What are the signs and symptoms of a brain tumor?

The most common first signs of a brain tumor include vomiting, headache and falling down or having poor balance (called ataxia).

Because vomiting and headaches are symptoms of common viruses, the other symptoms such as neurological changes, falling, weakness in one arm or leg, weakness in one side of the face and changes in vision or speech are important to identify that something is wrong with the brain.

Some children also experience sudden trouble in school or personality changes.
