Symptoms of a Choroid Plexus Tumor

Like most brain tumors, choroid plexus tumors have a range of possible symptoms that depend on where the tumor is located, its size, and its individual characteristics and grade. Most people who experience headache, nausea, or the other symptoms below do not have a brain tumor.

Signs and symptoms of a choroid plexus tumor and related hydrocephalus may include:

  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Irritability/mood changes
  • Headaches
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Sleepiness
  • Seizures

Suspicious symptoms or sudden changes should be brought to the attention of a medical professional for evaluation and possible testing.
