Depends: Depending on the dr you see, and the symptoms you have, at least some sort of imaging of your brain may be warranted in a dizzy work up if all other tests continue to be negative. Without a family history or other symptoms, a brain tumor would be very low on a "differential diagnosis" list. There are many more common causes of dizziness, most commonly inner ear issues. Best wishes.
