Thinking difficulties (cognitive impairment)

Thinking difficulties (cognitive impairment) (September 2019)

Many people diagnosed with a brain tumour will have some form of cognitive impairment (difficulties with their thinking abilities), due to the presence of the tumour and the pressure it puts on the brain. This leaflet describes the types of impairment that might develop and how they are affected by the location of the tumour, treatment and drugs, and by emotional and psychological factors.
