brain tumour

diagnosed

An acquired condition, which may affect children or adults.

brain tumour – various malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous) tumours can damage brain tissue and interfere with various functions, including muscle weakness and problems with balance, co-ordination, vision, hearing, speech, communication or swallowing.

A brain tumour may cause these symptoms because the space it takes up in the skull puts pressure on the brain, or because it is disturbing the function of the part of the brain it's growing in.
