Expatriate healthcare insurance customers who suffer from a brain tumour may face problems such as epilepsy, one expert has said.
Helen Bullbeck, director of cancer charity brainstrust, explained that this is due to "the irritation [a tumour] causes in the brain", adding that cases of late-onset epilepsy are quite commonly a result of this.
Further symptoms may include nausea and headaches as well as memory loss caused by seizures, she noted.
Patients may find that they have to keep hold of the information healthcare professionals provide them, which can be difficult, the expert asserted.
Furthermore, individuals are "put on medications to control the seizures – that can take a long, long time to get right", Ms Bullbeck continued.
"It can be very, very complex and very difficult to manage," she concluded.
Her comments follow a statement from Dr Mark Matfield, scientific coordinator of the Association for International Cancer Research, who claimed the public's understanding of the causes of tumours needs to be improved.
