Why go Gray in May? Here’s a quick list of FACTS and REASONS!
Most brain tumors are not linked with any known risk factors and have no obvious cause. But there are a few factors that can raise the risk of brain tumors. The best known environmental risk factor for brain tumors is radiation exposure, most often from radiation therapy to treat some other condition.
WARNING SIGNS / SYMPTOMS
Certain signs and symptoms could suggest that a person might have brain cancer. But tests are needed to confirm this. At this time, there is no sure way to prevent brain cancer! Early detection, age, type of tumor, and its location could determine the patients survival rate… If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, the best way to find it early is to report any possible signs or symptoms to your doctor right away!
