Brain tumour symptoms: Parents of toddler issue warning as vital signs missed


Common symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Seizures (fits)
  • Persistently feeling sick (nausea), being sick (vomiting) and drowsiness
  • Mental or behavioural changes, such as memory problems or changes in Personality
  • Progressive weakness or paralysis on one side of the body
  • Vision or speech problems.

According to the NHS, you should see a GP if you have these types of symptoms, particularly if you have a headache that feels different from the type of headache you usually get, or if headaches are getting.

As the health body explains, you may not have a brain tumour, but these types of symptoms should be checked.

“If the GP cannot identify a more likely cause of your symptoms, they may refer you to a doctor who specialises in the brain and nervous system (neurologist) for further assessment and tests, such as a brain scan,” it says.
