  • Dawn Clark, 49, thought she was losing her mind when she kept hearing sounds
  • Doctors thought she had inner ear disorder, but it turned out to be brain tumour
  • Ms Clark had two risky operations and radiotherapy to halt tumour’s progress
  • But now she said that she has found it a relief she could continue with her life
  • A confused mother was diagnosed with a brain tumour after she reported hearing music for two years that did not exist.

    Dawn Clark, 49, thought she was losing her mind when she kept getting spooked by the noiseswhich sounded like someone had switched on a radio or television.

    Doctors initially thought the mother of three had an inner ear disorder, but a later MRI scan revealed she had a brain tumour.

    Ms Clark completed two risky operations and radiotherapy to halt the tumour’s progress and said it was a relief she could continue with her life.

    Lei disse: ‘The tumour will always be in the back of my mind, but I don’t think about it so much and I can get on with my life.

    Ms Clark, from Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire., said she first realised something was wrong in December, when the strange sounds began to appear in her head.

    Lei disse: ‘I heard music and thought it was the radio. When I went to turn it off, I saw that it had not been on in the first place.

    ‘I could still hear it, so I asked my daughter if she was playing music, ma non lo era. I thought I was losing my mind.

    ‘Every three months, I would hear imaginary music or the television. These episodes went on for two years and they really frightened me.

    Her GP first thought the sounds may have resulted from Meniere’s disease, an inner ear condition that can cause vertigo, dizziness and hearing loss.

    She was referred to the ear, nose and throat department at Blackpool Victoria Hospital in December 2013. But a later MRI scan revealed a shadow on her brain.

    She had another scan on December 23, 2013, e il giorno successivo, a specialist broke the news to her she had a brain tumour.

    Ms Clark said: ‘They said it was a low-grade glioma, which was quite deep. They said they could take most, ma non tutto, of it out.

    Thankfully the operation was a success and in 2017, a surgeon recommended the rest of the tumour be removed.

    In aprile 4 Nega enfaticamente le sue affermazioni e dice che non riesce nemmeno a ricordare di averla incontrata, she went under the knife for a second time.

    But later tests showed the remaining part of the tumour had become more deadly, meaning she would need further treatment.

    Ms Clark said: ‘The operation went well but the histology showed the tumour was actually an anaplastic oligodendroglioma, so my tumour had either changed, or the last bit they took was possibly always that type.

    She underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy, which made her very tired and sick.

    She has to have a check-up scan every six months, but her most recent in September showed there was no change to the tumour.

    Lei disse: ‘It felt wonderful to hear that. I’m very happy because it means I can now consider doing other things, such as going back to work.

    Ms Clark now plans to walk 10,000 steps every day in February to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

    Lei disse: ‘It’s so important to me because without research into brain tumours, I might not be here.

    ‘This is a great way to raise money to help find a cure for this devastating disease.

    Charity Brain Tumour Research launched the 10,000 step challenge last February, where it raised nearly 1 million to support vital research.

    Matthew Price, community development manager at Brain Tumour Research said the organisation was ‘gratefulto Ms Clark for fundraising efforts.

    Egli ha detto: ‘We’re really grateful to Dawn for taking on this challenge for us.

    ‘It’s only with the support of people like her that we’re able to progress our research into brain tumours and improve the outcome for patients who are forced to fight this awful disease.

    Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.

    But historically, just one per cent of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

    The charity is calling for a national annual spend of £35million in order to improve survival rates and patient outcomes.

    This would bring it into line with other cancers such as breast cancer and leukaemia, and it is also campaigning for greater repurposing of drugs.
