Brain tumor: A very broad question as it depends on where in the brain the tumor occurs. For example if in the motor area then difficulty with walking and ambulating, if in the speech area then speech difficulties, if in the pituitary then hormonal issues.

Severe: First, those close to the person notice personality change. Untreated, nausea, vomiting, headache, and/or seizures supervene, and if the tumor cannot be effectively treated, death results. Thankfully, many brain tumors are very manageable nowadays. Good luck.
