Meningioma can affect multiple areas of the brain. One of the areas is the frontal lobe (olfactory groove). Tumors in this area are reported to cause headaches and possible personality changes. Seizures can be a symptom of a tumor in this location as well.
The tumors can appear on the planum sphenoidate and the tuberculum sella. With this type of tumor, patients have reported progressive vision loss. Headaches and double vision can occur. The pituitary gland may begin to function improperly if there are tumors in this area.
Meningioma can affect the surface of the frontal, temporal, parietal, or occipital lobes. Many symptoms can be produced from this condition. Patients often experience headaches, weakness, and fatigue. Vision loss, double vision, and seizures can occur with these tumors as well. Patients can begin having difficulty walking, become confused, and experience personality changes.
The final location these tumors can affect is in the posterior fossa. This is the spot where the skull base ends and the spinal cord begins. Patients can start to experience loss of coordination and difficulty walking. Hearing loss and double vision can be a result of a tumor. Numbness, headaches, and neck pain are common symptoms of this condition. Often, patients report to have difficulty swallowing and urinary incontinence.
