Tell us why this ???: Brain tumors are uncommon yet they can occur at any age. You need to give us some background as to why you are concerned about this issue??? Most patients with brain tumors experience persistent headaches which progressively get worse. Other symptoms may include, nausea, vomiting, reduced vision, seizures or loss of function of an arm or leg(uncommon)
