Meningiomas - Symptoms

​Most benign tumours do not show any signs until they are large and increase brain pressure. Signs vary, depending on the tumour’s location.

They include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Seizures
  • Numbness/weakness in the arms/legs if the tumour is near the area which controls motor functions
  • Double/blurred vision if the tumour presses the nerve leading to the eye, or is large enough to cause a
    generalised increase in pressure
  • Loss of smell, taste, hearing and memory, if the tumour grows between the eyebrow and nose
