Question

Diane asked:

I was 35 when I realised that I had synesthesia but no-one in my family has it. I was wondering if it was the brain tumour I had when I was young that triggered it off?

Answer

For most people that we've met that have synesthesia, it has started when they were very young. It was therefore likely to be there before you had a tumour.
