Practically rules out large symptomatic brain tumor and ms these normal studies should reassure you not make you nervous we are missing something look up the sensitivity for brain MRI this should reassure you and the incidence of primary brain tumors in your age group they are rare.

It sounds like your complete work up ruled out a brain cancer, good news. Your exaggerated concern is more consistent with obsessive compulsive disorder. Ask your pmd about a good psychologist or psychiatrist. This is not a joke and sounds like you are truly suffering with these concerns. Good luck, don't fight it on your own it is not worth it.
