Symptoms of Tumor Becoming Active Again

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi. I was diagnosed with an optic glioma when I was 3 months old, but it has been stable since I was 3 and a half. Now I’m 18 and have been experiencing some concerning symptoms including: nausea amp vomiting, dizzy spells and changes in my menstrual cycle. I have had some hormonal changes since starting and stopping the pill but this seems like more than simply hormonal fluctuations. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hi Julie

    Your symptoms definitely sound like they coulf be related to a brain tumor or lesion

    Don't panic

    There are varying degrees of tumors

    But nausea and vomiting is serious in relation to one.

    I would definitely look at ghe possibilities of having

    What is known as a pituitary tumor

    The good thing is they are not cancerous

    I would get the doctor to check

    Your cortisol as well as your prolactin levels

    And get an mri if possible

    I would possibly go to the emergency at the

    Hospital in case it is an

    Adrenal crisis

    All the best
