A bone fracture is a broken bone, which can happen to any bone in the body. Fractures require medical attention. Injury is the most common cause, with symptoms including bruising, bleeding, difficulty breathing and in the case of a limb (arm, leg), deformity. Diseases like osteoporosis can weaken bones, making them more susceptible to breaking.

A brain aneurysm is a bulge in a blood vessel within the brain. Sometimes a small brain aneurysm can be present with no symptoms, but when an aneurysm bursts or leaks, it causes bleeding in the brain with symptoms like sudden, severe headache and vomiting, which is a life-threatening emergency. A large unruptured aneurysm can press on nerves and tissue, causing symptoms like pain near the eyes and numbness or weakness in the face.

A brain tumor is an overgrowth of abnormal cells in or close to the brain. Cancerous or malignant brain tumors tend to grow quickly. There are more than 120 different types of brain tumors. Symptoms of brain cancer vary depending on the tumor’s size and location and include headaches, nausea, vomiting, lack of coordination and balance, difficulty walking, speech and vision problems, personality changes, muscle jerking or twitch, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs and seizures.

Brain Tumor

A brain tumor is an abnormal mass of cells in the brain that either begins in the brain (primary brain tumor) or grows from a cancer that begins elsewhere in the body and travels to the brain (metastatic, or secondary brain tumor).  Brain tumors can be benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and depending on the location, possible symptoms include unexplained nausea and vomiting, headaches that get progressively worse, seizures and personality changes.
