Brain cancer fact sheet: Communication
Communication needs a number of skills that involve different areas of the brain. The location of the tumour in the brain will affect the sorts of communication difficulties a person may experience.
In a survey, the carers of people with a brain tumour found that:
- 26% of their relatives 'sometimes or frequently' interrupted the conversation or talked out of turn.
- 21% had some difficulties with communication, such as trouble finding words or having a tendency to ramble.
