Is an eye doctor one of the specialists a patient sees if he has a brain tumor?

Is an eye doctor one of the specialists a patient sees if he has a brain tumor?

Yes.: If the tumor is of sufficient size to cause an increase in the intracranial pressure (icp), there is swelling of the optic nerves as they are "pushed" on by the high pressure. The result is a finding called "papilledema" which is a tell tale sign of increased icp. So, yes, for larger tumors the answer would be yes. Small tumors may have no impact, especially intiially. ...Read more

Only one eye is red in flash photo, the other white-ish. Is that a sign of brain tumor in an adult?

Only one eye is red in flash photo, the other white-ish. Is that a sign of brain tumor in an adult?

Doubtful. : While loss of the light reflex can rarely indicate there is a mass in your eyeball, brain tumors will typically not cause this. Brain tumors can cause swelling behind the eyes which should not affect how your eyes appear in a photograph. Loss of the light reflex and swelling behind your eyes can both be easily evaluated by visiting your optometrist. ...Read more

Born with a lazy eye 25yr old I have noticed my lazy eye returned over last week i have anxiety  could this be the cause? scared of brain tumor?

Amblyopia or "lazy : eye" is vision loss, usually in one eye, that occurs in infancy & early childhood when the brain " turns off" signals from an eye that, for 1 or more reasons, has sent blurry signals to the brain over time. If not corrected, a "lazy eye" develops some degree of permanent vision loss. Worsening vision needs evaluation by an MD who specializes in vision & eye problems, an ophthalmologist, ...Read more

How can MRI on brain miss a brain tumor when two eye docs,2 neruo, and 2neruosurgeon all say can't see tumor but there could be one starting and now have one avm in oct last year and one this June.

MRI scans: To see a tumor or AVM with MRI depends on many factors, including the size, shape, location, enhancement and secondary signs such as edema and changes in normal anatomy. A very small tumor in the right location can be easily seen, but even larger tumors cannot be seen until they change the anatomy of the rest of the brain or enhance. And very small tumors at times are not seen. Same for AVM. ...Read more

Can brain tumor cause full body aches and twiching also sleep disturbances  wake up every 3h did spine MRI neuro blood eyes test all good...?

Not likely.: This does not fit the typical presentation of a brain tumor. That would be headache, vision change, or even more likely, a gait disturbance. It still might be one, but highly unlikely. More likely, is something like a nerve compression, or seizure, or some other illness. You really should see a neurologist for a full work-up urgently as this can still be serious and result in permanent damage. ...Read more

Can brain tumor cause aches and tingling to whole body also sleep disturbnces i wake up evey 3 hour.Did spine MRI blood neuro eye tests al ok anxiety?

Anxiety: I'm glad your spine, blood, eye and neuro exams were clear. With all this, brain tumor is unlikely. You question whether anxiety can cause some of these problems, and it's possible. It sounds like your family physician has started an initial workup, and wants to help you. Consulting with a psychiatrist may be a good idea also; can work w/you on the anxiety piece. Maybe a sleep study also. ...Read more
