In brief: Symptoms?

If the tumor is small and not pressing on vital areas of the brain, depending on the tumor type, if benign or cancerous, it can be present for a very long time and undiagnosed.
A very aggressive tumor however, or a tumor that affects an important part of the brain will likely be diagnosed fairly quickly.
