Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

It depends upon the size of the neoplasm / cancerous lesion and the position. For example in the forebrain, it may affect personality. In the midbrain , it may affect hearing and visual apparatus.

Wishing you best of health

Symptoms of both primary and metastatic brain tumors depend chiefly on the location in the brain and the size of the tumor.

1) Tumors in the frontal lobe of the brain can lead to weakness and lack of ability to move on one side of the body (paralysis), mood disturbances, difficulty in thinking, confusion and disorientation, and emotional mood swings.

2) Parietal lobe tumors can lead to seizures, lack of feeling or paralysis, failure to perform simple mathematical problems, trouble with certain movements, and loss of sense of touch. Tumors in the occipital lobe can lead to loss of vision in half of each visual field and visual hallucinations.

Symptoms of a brain tumor can be general or specific. A general symptom is caused by the pressure of the tumor on the brain or spinal cord. Specific symptoms are caused when a specific part of the brain is not working well because of the tumor. For many people with a brain tumor, they were diagnosed when they went to the doctor after experiencing a problem, such as a headache or other changes.
