There are many illnesses in the world but a diagnosis of cancer is always devastating. Any type of cancer can affect you and your entire family but when the diagnosis is of brain cancer, it is one of the more serious and frightening forms of the disease. It is important to know the symptoms of brain cancer so you don’t ignore something you may be experiencing and delay the diagnosis.
One of the more serious types of brain cancer is glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer that most professionals consider to be incurable. Many people have recently become aware of this type of cancer because of the death of the presidential candidate and Republican Senator, John McCain.
McCain was aware that he had cancer because of his diagnosis in July, 2017. For many people, the diagnosis does not come until it is too late. Brain tumors may carry a number of different symptoms and they can be difficult to pinpoint.
If you pay attention to what your body is telling you, you may get an early diagnosis. Here are some of the early warning signs of brain cancer.
1. Persistent headaches
Headaches are one of the most common signs of a brain tumor, affecting about 50% of those who have this form of cancer. The pain tends to be worse when you wake up in the morning or if you move suddenly. These types of headaches do not typically respond to the use of pain medication.
