In brief: Medulloblastoma

Most common early sign is severe headaches, followed by gait ataxia - a stumbling like gait with sometimes running into walls and falling.
If the tumor gets large enough there can be swallowing problems and rarely facial weakness.

In brief: Location, location

The symptoms of medulloblastoma, or any other tumor of the nervous system, really depend on its location.
Medulloblastomas typically occur in young patients, most commonly affecting the lower parts of the brain and sometimes the spinal cord. Symptoms could include headaches, weakness, difficulty walking, or problems with the cranial nerves.
