The brain is the control center of the body. It controls memory, learning, your senses, emotions, muscles, organs and blood vessels. When tumors appear in the brain and are present nowhere else in the body, they are primary brain tumors. Often, brain tumors begin elsewhere in the body and spread to the brain (often from lung or breast tumors). These types of tumors are called metastatic brain tumors.
Here are the most common symptoms of having a brain tumor:
- Frequent headaches
- Loss of appetite
- Changes in mood
- Changes in personality
- Changes in the ability to think
- Changes in the ability to learn
