Headache: Genrally a brain tumor gives a persistent headache that does not go away and it has other associated neurological deficits or symptoms. Get it out of your mind. People are more likely to die driving than from a brain tumor.

Please remember: At age 17 you have your whole great life ahead of you. Choose healthy habits today and unless you have a family history of very poor health, you will do fine. In fact even if your family is unhealthy, you can do much better, so start today. Talk to your physician for guidance. Good success!
