In brief: Brain Cancer Care
Caring for a brain cancer sufferer is similar to caring for a stroke patient when neurological symptoms supervene, including epilepsy, mood changes, mental status alterations, depression, partial paralysis, and vision changes.
Depending on the area of brain affected, any or all of these symptoms can occur, sometimes early, and other times, in the late stages.
