Campaign launched for brain tumour awareness

8th June 2011

A campaign is being launched to teach parents to look out for the warning signs of brain tumours.

They are the leading cause of cancer deaths in children and leave two-thirds of survivors with significant disability. A quarter of all child cancers occur in the brain and about 500 children and young people a year develop brain tumours. The warning signs parents are urged to look for include fits, persistent or recurring vomiting and headaches, blurred or double vision, abnormal eye movements and deteriorating eyesight.
