Brain Health Matters

March is Brain Tumour Awareness Month, having been launched by a group of charities to lead the way in raising vital awareness and funds to help support the vision of finding a cure for all types of brain tumours.

Being aware of the signs and symptoms are crucial to early detection. In the UK, 16,000 people each year are diagnosed with a brain tumour. The direct cause of a brain tumour is still not clear - there are over 120 different types of brain tumour, so more investment in research is urgently needed.

The symptoms of a brain tumour will depend upon which part of the brain is affected. Some of the common warning signs may include:

  • Headaches

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Vision problems

  • Seizures

  • Weakness or numbness

  • Speech difficulties

  • Cognitive changes such as Confusion, memory loss, and difficulty concentrating
