Signs of Meningiomas

Symptoms of meningiomas vary between people. They depend on the tumor’s size and location. These tumors tend to grow slowly. Often, people do not develop symptoms until the tumor is large.

Small meningiomas may not cause symptoms. In fact, physicians often only discover them during an exam for an unrelated problem, such as a head injury or sinus issue.

When these tumors grow, they increase pressure in your skull. This can cause symptoms, including:

  • Vision or hearing loss
  • Seizures
  • Trouble thinking
  • Difficulty walking
  • Weakness in one arm or leg
  • Loss of smell
  • Headache
  • Nausea
