What to do if you are worried, need support or have been affected by issues raised by HeadSmart
Brain tumours in children and young people are relatively rare – just 500 occur per year in the UK. If you or your child is showing the symptoms described by HeadSmart materials there may be reasons for this other than a brain tumour. However, if you are concerned, please visit your GP and mention your concerns – you could even take HeadSmart materials to your appointment or show your GP this website.
Any child with symptoms that are unusual for him or her, or are persistent or unexplained should be checked by a GP. Please remember that any child needing urgent medical help should be taken to the nearest emergency department. In an emergency dial 999.
