Get checked,,,: You should get your dizziness checked out but at your age it's highly unlikely to be a brain tumor even with your history of ct scans. It's likely due to another possible cause, like lack of hydration, or sleep or too much lethargy/drowsy inducing medication. Still get checked if you're worried, but keep in mind one of these more likely explanations. Good luck.
