Recognizing The Signs: 10 Common Brain Tumor Symptoms to Be Aware Of!

2. Seizures or epileptic fits


Seizures or epileptic fits happen when a tumor disrupts normal brain activity. The seizures can be quite severe and last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. The patient may experience a feeling of fear or panic and may lose consciousness. They can also experience changes in vision, hearing, smell, or taste before and after the episode.

In some cases, seizures involve motor disturbances, such as jerking, twitching, or convulsions. They can also be accompanied by a range of physical and cognitive deficits, such as confusion, disorientation, and difficulty in speaking. Depending on the location and size of the tumor, the seizures can cause long-term cognitive impairment. The patient may also experience changes in mood and behavior and may become irritable or moody.

Seizures or epileptic fits can be frightening experiences, but with proper treatment can often be managed effectively. It’s important to seek medical attention right away in these cases because early diagnosis and treatment can help reduce the frequency and severity of the seizures and can help improve the quality of life.
