With any type of brain cancer, whether it is primary or secondary (metastatic), people will begin to experience certain symptoms of the disease.
But because the cancer is located in the brain, which is ultimately the focus of everything the body does and experiences, these symptoms will vary widely depending on which part of the brain is affected by these abnormal cells. Most symptoms fall into the basic categories that dictate sight, sound, speech, movement, and behavior.
1: disturbance of vision:
For some people, advanced brain cancer causes visual disturbance. Vision disturbance can manifest itself in different ways. As cancer progresses in the area of the brain that controls a person’s vision, it may cause a person to experience a blurry or double line of vision as well as a partial or complete loss of their ability to see.
Like many symptoms of cancer, the severity of this disorder may deteriorate as the condition worsens.
2: auditory disturbance:
For other people, advanced brain cancer can cause it to be best described as a hearing disorder. With this type of complication, people begin to suffer from a range of hearing loss symptoms, whether subtle or obvious.
When cancer originates or invades this area of the brain, it can affect the way a person hears. Like eyesight problems, the amount of sound heard can diminish increasingly as the cancer progresses.
3: Verbal disturbance:
Brain cancer, from the early to advanced stages, can cause a person to have a disturbance in their verbal ability. When this happens, someone may begin to blur or distort their words as well as lose their ability to speak. It may also lead to some problems forming words or even remembering the words he wants to say.
4: behavioral disorder:
There is a possibility that advanced brain cancer may cause a disorder in a person’s behavior. This episodic change can really run the gamut as a person may begin to experience a rise to death in any characteristic that involves emotion and personality, thus changing the way they will react to certain situations.
Something that wouldn’t normally cause an outburst or happy or sad emotion may now provoke one because of cancer. It may also prompt a person to perform strange activities or behaviors, such as pacing, tapping, drumming, twitching or other repetitive movements.
5: Cognitive disorder:
In parallel with behavioral disorders, a person with advanced brain cancer can also begin to suffer from cognitive disorders. These may be similar to those changes in emotion, personality or behavior, but this time the cancer will affect the ability to think and memory.
Retaining or remembering events or people from the recent or distant past can become difficult. Simple instructions or common tasks can lead to confusion and uncertainty. Words may be stripped of their average vocabulary.
6: Jelly Disorder:
With pregnancy disorders, a person may begin to undergo a decrease or loss in their ability to move. This can happen in several ways. For some, brain cancer may disrupt the mechanical ability to move an arm, a leg, or a group of limbs.
For others, it will affect the feeling within the extremities, reducing a person’s sense of touch and movement. It may even cause spatial disturbance, altering depth perception or balance. Should any of these disturbances occur, it will inevitably have an impact on the actual ability to walk, run, write, and carry, as well as other movement-dependent activities.
7: Other symptoms:
Besides these sensory disturbances, advanced brain cancer can also cause other characteristic symptoms. For some, headaches, both in terms of frequency and severity, will become an ever-increasing problem.
For others, nausea and vomiting will become more and more of a problem. There is also the possibility of seizures or a hormonal imbalance. The appearance of symptoms depends on the location of the cancer as well as the person affected.
