35 yr female, nondrinker, nonsmoker obese and has a meningioma tumor in front right area. Experiencing dizziness, increase irritability what to expect?

Not anything serious: Meningioma is a benign tumor, rarely, if ever, serious. Once treated with excision (if growing) they rarely recur and nearly all patients live a normal life. So you should not worry much about this problem and take your mind off of this condition as it is not likely to change much anytime soon. Just let your doctor guide you as to what needs to be done, if anything at all.

Hi my aunty suffers with dizzy spells and hair loss she also very obese and feels full all the time but she doesn't eat much. What could this be?

Dizzy and not hungry: It's hard to say since there are so many things that can cause those symptoms. The dizziness may be from dehydration, irregular heart rhythm, carotid artery stenosis, strokes, high or low blood pressure, medication, etc. The hair loss may be from nutritional deficiency. Sounds weird, but a large % of overweight people are actually malnurished because they don't eat a healthy diet. Needs to see doc.
