Medulloblastoma is a malignant brain tumor that most commonly develop in or near the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the area of the brain that controls movement and coordination.
This tumor affects the central nervous system (CNS) and can cause impairment in thought, speech, and body strength. Obstruction of normal CSF flow by these tumors can also lead to Hydrocephalus. Medulloblastoma most often occurs in children but can also be seen in adults.
Symptoms can vary depending upon the severity and location of the tumor.
Those suffering Medulloblastoma can experience signs and symptoms such as:
● Problems with coordination
● Cognitive impairment
● Balance issues
● Visual hallucination
