Is Saturday night palsy related to brain tumors?

Hello,

My father has suffered from Saturday night palsy two days back. He has high blood sugar too. He used to smoke and drink but quit. For years he has been living a healthy life which includes exercise and nutritious food. I am concerned, Is Saturday night palsy related to brain tumors? Is it an indication?

    hi, has he been checked by his physician?  From my experience of having a brain tumor in the most dangerous part of the brain is to me doubtful that it is a brain tumor.  Just one of my symptoms before my operation and radiation were seizure or tremor , shaking fast  in my left arm once in awhile and weakness with clumsiness, dropping things in my hands.  Thought I'd put this in, hope it's helpful on Saturday Night Palsy.
