Probably not: Although it's possible, what you describe doesn't cause alarm about brain tumors in my mind. Dull head pain and pressure where you describe is more likely something boring, like sinus congestion. When you say your eye is "foggy", do you mean you have trouble seeing? If yes, that is more concerning and you should see a doctor right away. Some eye problems can cause head pain and pressure.

possible not likely: Brain tumors are rare in people your age, but they do happen. Headache is a common symptom, but the combination of headache, visual problems, and your age suggest another set of possibilities, such as a variant of migraine. See your physician for a referral to a neurologist for a thorough evaluation, which might well include a brain MRI scan.

No.: You can get infection at the site of hair follicles, but you cannot get sores vaginally. You need to be seen by a doctor who can check your herpes viral titers.

What are some complications of laser eye surgery?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Very Few: While laser eye surgery (lasik, prk) is very safe, there can rarley be complications that may affect vision. Most commonly, the eye may not achieve perfect vision, and an enhancement may be needed later. Dry eyes can occur and last for several months, and small abrasions may be present for a few days. More rarely, surface skin can sometimes grow under the flap, causing blurred vision.

Can pressure behind the eyes be a thyroid condition?

Dr. Quang Nguyen

Possible: Thyroid disease can cause eye problem but many other conditions can also cause this: allergy, sinus infection, tumor...See your doctor to have your thyroid level checked. If it's normal, then the thyroid is not causing the eye problem. Good luck.

What would cause my son's ear to bleed slightly after having swimmers ear?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Is the cause of swimmers ear. The skin gets wet and boggy and inflamed and it could bleed from that or if he picks it at all it could bleed. If he had a middle ear infection as well and the eardrum perforated it could bleed. None of these are terrible problems. If you are concerned it is always a good idea to have it checked out.
