The symptoms of adult brain and spinal cord tumors are not the same in every person.
The symptoms caused by a brain tumor depend on where the tumor formed in the brain, the functions controlled by that part of the brain, and the size of the tumor. Headaches and other symptoms may be caused by adult brain tumors. Other conditions may cause the same symptoms. A doctor should be consulted if any of the following problems occur:

Brain Tumors

•    Frequent nausea and vomiting.

•    Unusual changes in personality or behavior.
•    Seizures.

Spinal Cord Tumors

•    A change in bowel habits or trouble urinating.
