Brain cancer fact sheets: Disorientation/Appearing Confused: Feeling lost, not knowing where you are?
Disorientation is a state in which a person may not know where they are, who they are, or what day it is.
People may look dazed or have a lack of clarity in their thoughts. It can be hard for them to make sense of what is happening around them. Some people may appear confused and unclear about things.
A survey of people with a brain tumour found that:
- 37% frequently became confused.
- 13% were frequently or almost always disorganised.
