Clinical assignment worksheet - cerebellar mass


I am a new nursing student. I am doing my clinical assignment worksheet and my pt has a cerebellar mass. I have to define it and give symptoms. I defined cerellum and mass. That was all I could find in my mosby's. There we not any symptoms so I used cerebellar tumor symptoms. Is this correct?


Specializes in Cardiac, Derm, OB.

Do you have a Lewis Med Surg book? any edition. In the index, look up cerebellar tumors and it will direct you to a page in: Acute Intracranial Problems, designated Brain tumors which will define it and give you clinical manifestations (symptoms). You can write a pathophysiology easily from this book. I have 7th edition so if you do by chance it is chapter 57.
