A man discovered he had a brain tumour after reading about people having similar symptoms on Facebook

A man who thought he was suffering from vertigo found out he had a potentially life threatening brain tumour after reading about similar experiences on Facebook — and now he wants to share his experience to help others too.
Tom Walker was initially diagnosed with having vertigo, after experiencing dizzy spells and headaches.
But the 36-year-old, who lives in Ystrad Mynach , discovered his condition was a lot more serious after reading posts from Facebook friends who had been diagnosed with brain tumours and realising his symptoms were the same.
