Unusual Warning Signs Of  Brain Cancer – See A Doctor If You Are Experiencing Them

Usually, cancer symptoms vary depending on which part of the body is affected by the tumor. Latest research shows that you could be at risk of a deadly tumor if you have certain feelings in your head.

First of all, it’s important to highlight that cancer is caused by cells in a specific part of the body that are reproducing uncontrollably, says NHS.

The cancerous cells can destroy the healthy tissue surrounding them and unfortunately, this can include organs as well. Statistics are currently claiming that more than one-third of all people will develop cancer eventually at some point in their lifetime.

Headaches and brain tumors

Headaches that are really severe and persistent could be an early sign of a brain tumor, according to Consultant Neurosurgeon Ian Sabin, as reported by Express.co.uk.

He discussed the issue with the website and said that such headaches are usually worse during the mornings and they gradually get better during the day.

It is not uncommon for the headaches to be accompanied by blurry vision when you are standing up from the seated position, the expert says.

“Early signs of a general brain tumor can include headaches that are severe and persistent, continue for an extended period and are unusual, i.e., not related to an existing illness,” said Sabin, who is also Medical Director at the London Gamma Knife Centre, part of HCA Healthcare UK.

“Characteristically they are present on waking in the morning and often improve once the individual is up and about.

“There may be a visual disturbance when rising from a sitting position, with ‘greying’ out of vision [obscurations] and a feeling of faintness.

Such a sudden onset headache is sometimes referred to as thunderclap, and it may be due to a hemorrhage in and around the brain that requires urgent care.

It’s also important to know that some brain tumors grow faster than others and it’s also required to have a second opinion. Another sign of a brain tumor is constant nausea. Vomiting and nausea are caused by a tumor that interferes with the internal circulation of the brain fluid, and this causes water in the brain.

If you are feeling nauseous and also drowsy and experience a headache at the same time, you should urgently see a doctor.
