According to one study, people who have been diagnosed with brain tumors do not pay enough attention to the symptoms of the disease that appear at first.
A group of British scientists interviewed patients with adults with brain tumors to know the signals that precede the diagnosis.
This study revealed that patients did not attach weight to the symptoms because they were considered too subtle and took them as a result of stress, occupation, fatigue, work, but did not consider them to be as serious as considering visiting the doctor.
Some said they felt wandering or subtle changes at some point, but did not link it to a tumor, or even reported it during their first visit to the doctor.
This study will allow doctors to understand what influence brain cancer can have on the behavior and cognition of sick patients, to know what symptoms may be a sign and to give more weight to small, though subtle, changes.
