Brain tumour misdiagnosed as sinus infection

A woman was taken to hospital after suffering a grand mal seizure. Doctors told her the seizure was caused by a sinus infection. She was then assessed by a dentist who referred her to a neurosurgeon. A brain tumour was discovered and surgery was performed. Several years later and another seizure caused by yet another tumour occurred. Brain tumour patients suffer symptoms such as seizures, headaches, nausea, vomiting and un-coordination.
