If a child is showing symptoms that we have described, this does not mean that they definitely have a brain tumour. These symptoms can have a variety of other causes, which may or may not be serious.
However, any child with symptoms that are unusual for them, or that are persistent or unexplained should be checked as soon as possible by a General Practitioner.
When you visit the doctor, consider showing the doctor this website or taking along the downloadable symptoms chart.
Please remember that any child needing urgent medical help should be taken to the nearest emergency department.
