The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system (CNS). Cancer can begin in the CNS or, more commonly, it can spread there.
Risk factors for brain cancer may vary. The cause of brain cancer is still largely unknown. Although some genetic conditions and environmental factors may contribute to the development of brain cancer, the risk factors are much less defined for brain cancer than for other cancers in the body.
The following is a list of common symptoms which, alone or combined, can be caused by a brain tumour (malignant or non-malignant):
-Dizziness or unsteadiness
-Double or blurred vision
-Morning nausea and vomiting
-Weakness or paralysis
Brain cancer symptoms vary depending on the type, extent, and location of the tumor, as well as the patient’s age and health history, and often mimic those caused by other medical conditions. As a leader in brain tumor treatment in Monterrey, Mexico, IDOI recommends you to consult a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis.
