Brain cancer

Brain cancer - Symptoms

Adults with brain cancers can present with fits or seizures. Other signs and symptoms that suggest increased pressure within the skull include persistent headaches associated with vomiting and double vision. Pressure builds up within the skull because the skull is a bony structure that cannot expand. A cancer growing within the brain inside the skull causes pressure to increase. Other patients may develop weakness and/or numbness of one side of their body that is similar to a stroke.
