Varied Brain sympto: Brain metastases often cause headaches which are persistent and progressive such that you will need medication to relieve it. other symptoms are nausea and or vomiting, vision changes and sometimes seizures. Paralysis of arms or legs can occur but only rarely. If there is any such concern a Brain MRI is a good test to check your brain.Radiotherapy and steroids are a good treatment(instead of Chemo
