Brain Tumor Mri
I started Prozac (fluoxetine) 10mg 7 days ago. The last few days I've been really forgetful. Could the Prozac (fluoxetine) cause this? Scared of brain tumor. MRI 6 months ago.
Contact doctor: You should contact the doctor who prescribed the medication. It has many side effects and your doctor needs to discuss the risk/benefit ratio with you. Are taking both prozac (fluoxetine) and amytriptiline? Do tell your doctor. You may consult this site for more information on this drug. http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-6997/prozac (fluoxetine)-oral/details#side-effects ...Read more
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
I have had pressure headache for a month, auras, & neck/ear stiffness. Worried about brain tumor. MRI w/o contrast normal. Should I get 1 w/ contrast?
No: I would urge you to get your headaches evaluated by another physician if you are having auras. This suggests migraine. If the diagnosis of "pressure headache" has been made, then you are owed a fuller account -- if you do have increased intracranial pressure, consideration of pseudotumor cerebri, hypertension & a mass lesion must be made & a clear diagnosis rendered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have pain in a specific spot on the right side of my head& it's been there for a month. Brain tumor? Had MRI 8 months ago. Have mem loss, scared. 18
Head pain: If a brain mri was normal eight months ago, that is somewhat reassuring. If you note a tender spot on the right side of your scalp, you may be dealing with neuralgia which is an irritability/mild inflammation of a superficial scalp nerve. I recommend that you consult a neurologist if symptoms don't resolve. ...Read more
Tumor type: This depends on tumor type, size and location. If the type of tumor is not clearly obvious on mri, biopsy or removal may be needed. If it is small and clearly benign, it may be feasible to follow it over time wit homer imaging. You'll need to talk to your doctor for more information. ...Read more
What is cortical dysplasia? i was diagnoised with it and it was origionally thought to be a brain tumor after several mri tests they said it was this
Born with it: Cortical dysplasia is when a small island of gray matter is out of place in the white matter layer of the brain, seen on MRI. It can be mistaken for a benign brain tumor. It happens during development of the brain, and usually causes no trouble. Rarely it can cause seizures, which can be treated with medicine. VERY rarely surgery is done to remove it if seizures are hard to control. ...Read more
Will a cat scan of my head rule out MS or a brain tumor better than mri? Had one before but am having another one due to vertigo.Im 18.Am i in danger?
No: Mri is by far the test of choice for ms. Either way will detect brain tumors, but actual better picture of the tumor itself with a mri. There is no danger to mri. Cat scans have radiation, but your doctor will guide you in consultation with a radiologist as to which test is most appropriate for your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the chances of an MRI w/ contrast picking up something (such as a brain tumor?) that a regular MRI could not?
Better: Contrast improves the ability to see most brain tumors. However, this is not the case with all of them. ...Read more

What to do if i just got diagnosed with a brain tumor. Is it possible to obtain a printout copy of my mri?
How long does it take on average for a brain tumor to grow? Years? Months? Days? Mri over about 13 months ago was normal.
Variable: Different type of tumors have different growth rates. If MRI was normal about a year ago, unless there has been a drastic change in symptoms, it is unlikely that you have a brain tumor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Do I pass Redmond test? I sway, but not enough to take a step. I feel myself swaying. Normal MRI 6 months ago. Scared of brain tumor. 27/F.
I had an MRI in April, and it was clean. Now I'm worried that I have a brain tumor, could a tumor grow that fast, or would it have been seen on mri?
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
