And why the Head CT: 3 years ago? The chance of a head ct causing a brain tumor is extraordinarily low for an individual probably less than 1/10, 000 studies. See a neurologist or get an excellent history and exam before any further studies.

Not likely: The amount of radiation from a ct scan is highly unlikely to induce a brain tumor. Also, "brain tumor symptoms" can be from many things other than a brain tumor...Unless you have a ct scan or MRI scan, or a brain biopsy which shows that indeed you have a tumor, then you may have many other possible conditions other than brain tumor. Consult your physicians and find out what's going on.
