    Absolutely, especially if one had a slight problem going into surgery. I had a brain tumor removed and ended up with lots of psych problems that lasted about 15 years. Mostly manic like symptoms, ADD like, emotional, and then stuff like memory, attention/concentration, learning, etc difficulties. I will never go through it again. They have something called cyberknife thats really good for brain tumors these days

    Brain tumors (especially Glioblastoma Multiforme) can indeed result in altered moods and behaviors. If you or a loved one has a brain tumor or suspects one, get an MRI of the brain. The location of the tumor will affect different things, but if it's in a frontal lobe, behavior will certainly be affected. My first husband died from a fast-moving tumor, and he went from being a brilliant person to one who was non-verbal with violent mood swings. He died six months after being diagnosed. No surgery or treatment could slow it. I hope you find the help you need.

    Possibly. But that's not how cancer is diagnosed.

    If it gets that far, there is usually pain and there can be recognisable symptoms like double vision or loss of smell or hearing.

    I'm not a doctor myself, but it's my understanding that a brain tumor or brain cancer may cause a manic state or altered mood. Please, however, do *not* try to provide a self-diagnosis (or self-treatment), and instead make an appointment with your family doctor.

    If the person seems to currently be in a manic state, please either call 9-1-1 or ask a trusted person to drive that individual to the nearest emergency room.

    Your doctor may also give a referral to a board-certified psychiatrist or psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (NP) due to the symptoms of mania and/or altered psychological mood.
