Brain cancer symptoms and signs increase as the disease progresses. What are the symptoms of advanced brain cancer?
The stages of brain cancer are divided into four sections, the fourth being the most serious.
Symptoms of brain cancer in its later stages
Symptoms may appear gradually over months or years or may appear suddenly and rapidly if the tumor is growing and spreading rapidly. Symptoms of advanced brain cancer vary, depending on its location and size. Here are some details about advanced brain cancer symptoms as follows:
- Symptoms appear due to increased pressure on the skull
As the disease progresses, the pressure of the tumor on the skull increases, which leads to a rise in pressure within the brain.
Headache: Headache is one of the most common symptoms of brain cancer, and is characterized by its severity and persistence, as headaches are exacerbated in the later stages of brain cancer.
Epilepsy or seizures: Epilepsy occurs in 30% of brain cancer patients.
A constant feeling of illness and fatigue: A patient with late-stage brain cancer suffers from constant tiredness, fatigue, and vision problems.
Dizziness or fainting: When high blood pressure in the brain causes reduced blood flow to the brain, lightheadedness or fainting occurs.
Vision problems: One of the symptoms of advanced brain cancer is partial or complete vision loss.
Mood swings and behaviors: A patient with advanced brain cancer suffers from persistent confusion, lack of concentration, and memory problems.
