Tumors sometimes develop in the brain. The majority of the brain tumors can be operated on if they are diagnosed early enough and they have no serious after-effects. However, if the growth results in the destruction of some nerve tissues, the damage may not be repaired. The exact cause of brain tumors is not clear.
The most common symptoms of brain tumors include headaches; numbness or tingling in the arms or legs; seizures, memory problems; mood and personality changes; balance and walking problems; nausea and vomiting; changes in speech, vision, or hearing. Treatment of a brain tumor depends on the type, location, and size of the tumor, as well as the age and health of the patient.
