5 Warning Signs of a Brain Tumour

03/11/22 – Wellbeing

16,000 people a year are diagnosed with a brain tumour, and they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other type of cancer. Yet awareness of the symptoms remains low, with many people being diagnosed too late for treatment to be effective.

So, in support of Brain Tumour Awareness Week (29 Oct – 5 Nov), we’re sharing some of the most common warning signs to look out for.

​Depending on where in the brain a tumour is located, people may also experience a wide range of other symptoms too – for a full list and further information, we recommend checking out Cancer Research UK’s website.

If you do experience any of the symptoms described here, it’s important to go and see your GP – they probably aren’t caused by a brain tumour, but if they are, asking the question and getting checked out and diagnosed early could save your life.
