Brain cancer

Brain cancers include: 

  • primary brain tumours, which start in the brain and almost never spread to other parts of the body
  • secondary tumours, or metastases, which are caused by cancers that began in another part of the body.

If you have any concerns about symptoms such as headaches, disturbed vision, nausea or loss of balance, see your general practitioner (GP) as soon as possible. 

You can also contact the oncologist at the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre.

For more information about symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer go to the Cancer Council website.
