Not all tumors come up with symptoms, either cancerous or benign. Depending on the location tumors can affect the function of important organs or the senses. For example, if you have a benign tumor you might experience headaches, fuzzy memory or vision trouble.
Depending on the location, possible symptoms of a tumour include:
- Discomfort or pain
- Night sweats
- Weight loss
- Loss of appetite
Benign tumors are easy to track if they are large enough to detect, particularly if they are close to the skin surface. However, these aren't large enough to cause discomfort and pain.
