Symptoms and Signs of Brain Metastases

  • Sometimes you have no obvious symptoms or signs that the cancer has spread to the brain. Rather, you may come in for a routine follow-up visit and the cancer is found during exams or on imaging scans.
  • Possible common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred or double vision, memory and/or personality changes, or speech changes.
  • Sometimes changes in nerve function may cause numbness or a weakness in part of your body; problems with balance can also occur.
  • If you begin to have these symptoms, call your doctor. These symptoms can also indicate other health issues that may need immediate medical attention.
