Symptoms of Meningiomas
The symptoms of a meningioma often depend on its size and location. A small tumor pressing on the optic nerve could cause visual loss while a tumor located in the convexity, or on the surface of the brain, may grow to the size of a grapefruit before the patient notices any symptoms.
Signs and symptoms of a brain meningioma may include:
- Persistent headaches
- Loss of neurological function
- Weakness and/or abnormal sensations, such as numbness and tingling, especially on one side of the body
- Hearing or vision loss
- Balance problems
- Muscle weakness
The size and location of the meningioma will determine an appropriate treatment plan.
