Symptoms of an oligodendroglioma brain tumor depend on where in the brain the tumor is located. Many oligodendrogliomas appear in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain.
If a brain tumor is located in the frontal lobe, symptoms may include gradual changes in mood and personality, impaired judgment, seizures, and weakness or numbness in muscles on one side of the body.
If an oligodendroglioma is in the temporal lobe, the tumor may lead to language difficulties, both speaking and understanding, as well as memory problems and seizures.
Common symptoms of an oligodendroglioma are:
Visual loss (altered vision or visual hallucinations)
