Doctor can evaluate: There are countless numbers of people across the globe who are convinced they have a brain tumor today. Fortunately, almost every one of them do not have a brain tumor. Statistics rule the day. Brain tumors are truly rare. That means such a patient should write down on a calendar her whole brain tumor story, listing symptoms and dates, and go see her primary care provider.
