Brain tumor symptoms depend on the size and location of the tumor. These symptoms are caused by the damage the tumor does to specific parts of the brain.
Focal neurological symptoms can occur as a result of a tumor in a specific part of the brain. These are some examples of this type of symptom.
As the tumor grows, these other symptoms may arise from increased pressure within the skull.

Tremor symptoms are involuntary muscle movements that can occur in a specific body area. The most commonly affected and most noticeable areas include the hands, arms, and head, as well as a quavering voice if the tremor affects the voice box (larynx). Tremor symptoms include hand shaking, head shaking, and trembling and shaking while performing a task, such as gripping a fork or pencil. Tremor can also occur while you are at rest.
The term “tremor” most accurately refers to a small, rhythmic shaking movement that occurs in a back-and-forth pattern. However, tremor is also commonly used to refer to sudden jerking or muscle spasms of the body or extremities, such as the symptoms described for restless leg syndrome. Tremors can occur at any age but most commonly occur in middle-aged and older men and women.
