5 Things You Need to Know About Brain Cancer Life Expectancy

For a successful recovery, it is essential to know the origin of cancer in the brain. As some brain cells go haywire, they transform into a tumor feeding on the blood and nutrients around them. As they run out of control, they wreak havoc on the body by encroaching on other parts of the brain, causing all the tell-tale signs and symptoms of cancer. Watch out for brain swelling-related headache, weakness, clumsiness, seizures, difficulties with walking, speech, vision and changes in mood, memory, concentration and other weakened or impaired faculties.
