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
  • Nausea
  • Loss of neurological function
  • Weakness and/or abnormal sensations, such as numbness and tingling, especially on one side of the body
  • Seizures
  • Hearing or vision loss
  • Balance problems
  • Muscle weakness

The size and location of the meningioma will determine an appropriate treatment plan.
