Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Tumors are abnormal conditions in which the body's cells overgrow. Tumors can occur in any part of the body, including the brain. Brain tumors can affect anyone, regardless of age.
Brain tumors can be benign or malignant / (cancerous). Malignant tumors will experience rapid growth while benign tumors experience relatively slower growth. However, both benign and malignant tumors that occur in the brain are potentially harmful to patients because the mass effect of tumors can promote vital structures that regulate respiratory function as well as the cardiovascular system that is vital to a person's life.
Symptoms of brain tumors vary from one another, depending on the size of the tumor, the speed at which the tumor grows, and the location of the tumor in the brain. Common symptoms of brain tumors due to the mass effect of the head include vomiting, headache, and decreased consciousness. For other functional disorders, of course, it depends on the location of the tumor.
If your friend's condition has been checked by a doctor and diagnosed with a brain tumor, then the forgetting symptoms can be made possible by the pressure of the tumor that occurs in the area of the brain that regulates memory. However, symptoms of forgetfulness can also be caused by other brain diseases such as blockage of blood vessels, bleeding, brain infection, or it can also be caused by conditions that are not related to diseases of the brain such as lack of sleep, lack of nutrition, psychological stress.
To further confirm your relative's condition and the cause of the forgetfulness symptoms that occur, you should ask the doctor who examined him, because he is the one who knows your sibling's medical history thoroughly based on in-depth interviews, physical examination and supporting examinations.
This condition will disappear on its own or permanently, of course, depending on the cause of the often forgetful complaints. If the cause is a brain tumor, as long as the tumor is still in your sibling's brain, it is unlikely that the complaint will disappear on its own. However, if the cause is not due to a disease in the brain, such as lack of sleep, then generally complaints of forgetting to often improve by themselves.
That is the explanation from me. May be useful.
