Brain Tumour

A brain tumour is a growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain or central spine.

Brain tumours can be benign (no cancer cells and grow slowly) or malignant (cancer cells that grow quickly).

Warning signs of a brain tumour include: 

•Frequent headaches
•Double or blurred vision
•Morning nausea and vomiting
•Weakness or paralysis
•Personality changes
•Hearing impairment

If you or someone you care about experiences any of these symptoms, please consult your doctor.

Every day, 27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour.
