Headaches that wake you up in the morning, seizures, a sudden change in cognitive function or personality, eye weakness, nausea and vomiting, speaking problems or memory loss -- all these could be early symptoms of a brain tumor. And when you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, especially a brain tumor, it can be difficult to know where to turn.

The MCG Neuroscience Center presents “Cancer and the Brain: Awareness of Early Symptoms and Treatment Options” to help answer some of those questions. The free seminar is on Saturday, March 25 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Augusta Marriott Hotel & Suites (formerly the Radisson Riverfront Hotel) in downtown Augusta.

MCG specialists will discuss the symptoms of brain tumors, the latest treatments, support resources and how brain tumors may be related to other cancers.

“Brain cancer is a difficult diagnosis. Patients and families need to arm themselves with information about brain cancer, its symptoms and the latest treatment options,” said Dr. Alfredo Voloschin, Director of the MCG Neuro-Oncology Program.

To register, please call 706-721-5394 or visit www.MCGHealth.org.
