Headache. This is the most common symptom and is present in almost all patients. Due to low medical culture, this symptom is often ignored and treated with “folk remedies”. The headache is often local in nature – the back of the head, “pressing on the eyes,” etc. Headache is a nonspecific symptom, however, if it appears in the morning for a long time, and especially when the pain is accompanied by nausea and vomiting, the patient MUST consult a doctor.
Dizziness. Also among the nonspecific symptoms, dizziness should be noted. Patients often attribute this to “overwork” and “constant stress.” However, if dizziness appears, which does not respond to the “usual” treatment, you should also consult a specialist.

At first, the symptoms may be solitary, but others are added over time. Since in most cases, meningiomas are benign tumors, they grow slowly over the years and, accordingly, the symptoms grow just as slowly, until the period when the brain can no longer compensate for the compression of an already large tumor.
