Mixed Gliomas

Symptoms and Signs of Mixed Gliomas

The first signs of mixed gliomas are likely to be associated with increased pressure on the brain, possibly due to blockage of the ventricles that leads to a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid, and may include: headache, seizures, mood and behavioral changes, vision changes, weakness or paralysis, and nausea or vomiting. 
Tumors located in the frontal lobe of the brain are more likely to cause changes in mood and personality, and may also lead to paralysis on one side of the body (called hemiparesis). Tumors in the temporal lobe may caused coordination, speech and memory problems. Finally, tumors in the parietal lobe may interfere with writing and other motor skills, and may also lead to hemiparesis.
