The symptoms in a brain type of cancer generally depend upon two things namely the size and the location of the tumor. though the symptoms of the solid neoplasms that occur inside the brain may differ in the case of primary or secondary tumors alike that may be as a cause of the intercarnial hypertension. the symptoms that generally occur are those tht are th results of the enlarged intercarnial pressure. big tumors often occur with much perifiral swelling and are generally followed by increased pressure which is generally intercarnial. the symptoms may be followed up with the consequences of the intercarnial pressure so formed.
Signs and Symptoms of Brain Tumor
the large tumors are often occuring with extensive periforal swelling generally called as edema that my lead to elevated intercarnial pressure to occur that may translate clinically to headaches, vomiting and sometimes what occurs without nausea, the altered state of consciousness that is generally called as solomeness or coma or in other cases the dilation of the pupil of the eye on the side of the lesion may start to occur. but even small tumors that obstruct the passage of the cerebrospinal fluid may result in the early signs of the increased intercarnial pressure thus occurring being an early sign and may even result in herniation or displacement of certain parts of the brain such as the cerebellar tonsils or the temperal tonsils or the temperal uncus, that may even result in lethal brain stream compression. in very young children, the elevated pressure ( that is generally intercarnial one ) may result an increase to occur in the diameter of the skull of the affected person and the fontanelles may start being bulged.
The disfunctioning may occur depending upon the location of the tumor that may have resulted to the territories of the brain structures, either by getting compressed or by the infilteration. any type of the focal neurological signs may even reside in that person including cognitive and behavioral impairment including the signs like memory loss, loss of recognition sense and impaired judgement may occur and in some of the cases even the spatial orientation disorders may occur with the patient.
the changes related with the personality or hemiparesis or hypoesthesia or others like ataxi, visual field impairment and impaired sense of smell and impaired hearing etc may even occur in the patient with a tumor inside his brain.
