Headaches and seizures are the most common symptoms. Headaches usually occur in the early morning, sometimes waking people up, and worsen with coughing or sneezing. The growing tumour pressing up against the skull causes the headaches. Other symptoms depend on the location of the tumour but can include behaviour changes, confusion, and trouble with speech, memory, or concentration.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is usually used to find cancer. Computed tomography (CT) can also be used. The only way to prove the diagnosis is to take a tissue sample from the tumour and study it under the microscope. Taking this sample can be done either by a biopsy or at the surgery if the whole tumour is to be removed.
