Neuro-Oncology: Patients with primary brain tumors or single metastatic tumors can present with any of undermentioned signs and symptoms, whereas patients with multiple brain metastases tend to present with generalized symptoms and may lack localized findings.
Seizures (partial or generalized) are the presenting symptom in 15-20% of patients with intracranial tumors. Seizures also are common with tumors located in cerebral hemispheres.
“Stroke-like” onset of symptoms may occur due to hemorrhage within the tumor or, less commonly, macroscopic tumor embolus from systemic cancer. Intra-tumoral hemorrhage can occur in any primary or metastatic brain tumor.
