Personality Changes

All cancers can cause personality changes both before and after diagnosis. Firstly, the tumor may affect the cognitive systems and change how the patient processes different emotions. This is something that may happen subconsciously and only their loved ones will notice.

After diagnosis, they may also experience personality changes because it’s a stressful situation. Increased aggression and depression are known results that impact many victims. They must have a strong and understanding support network that tries to help them through their battle. (via Science Direct)

Drowsiness

Brain cancer may cause fatigue because of the tumor’s effect on the organ. This is very difficult to treat until the overall prognosis improves. Usually, it takes about six months for patients to recover from extreme tiredness. Meanwhile, other factors may trigger fatigue too.

Unsurprisingly, a brain cancer diagnosis often causes stress and this may result in fatigue. Furthermore, other symptoms like cognitive difficulties and eating problems may have the side-effect of tiredness. Often several signs of brain cancer relate to and influence each other.

Behavioral Changes

We may notice that somebody in our life is inexplicably behaving differently. There are many reasons behind this but if it’s a sudden and unusual change then it may be a sign of their deteriorating health. Maybe they’re strangely fixating on things or acting erratically .

This can be a sign of brain cancer because they aren’t processing thoughts as clearly as before. It’s a difficult one to approach because we don’t want to offend anybody by asking them if they have a health issue. However, it’s better to check in and potentially save their life than just to ignore them. (via Chateau Recovery)
