A brain tumor is a cancerous or non-cancerous mass or growth of abnormal cells in the brain. Studies indicate that tumors can starts in the brain, or elsewhere in the body and spread to the brain.
According to the school of medical sciences and research, brain tumors affect the function of normal brain cells by invading them or causing pressure on normal surrounding brain tissue. These tumors eventually grow over a period depending upon whether they are benign or malignant.

Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers that help to control certain processes in your body like telling your organs and tissues what to do and are produced in the endocrine glands.
Furthermore, they help to control the body's metabolism and reproduction. So when you constantly have a hormonal imbalance, it might be a symptom of a brain tumor. I recommend you see your doctor immediately. Also, engage in physical activities that make you happy. Be positive and listen to music.

Some of them are inability to concentrate, mood swings, numbness of the arms or legs, fatigue, muscle weakness, nausea, and vomiting, difficulty swallowing, etc. (Source: School of Medical Sciences and Research)
