Do you have a : Brain tumor, and if so, what kind of lesion is it? If you do not, then why are you worried? Brain tumors receive a lot of news, but are relatively rare. Headaches are not the usual presenting sign these days, and many are diagnosed when imaging of brain is done for an unrelated reason. Some are discovered after a seizure, others when slow arm and/or leg weakness develops.
