Neoplasms (Definition)

"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

Hist. Of pituitary tumors. Has one removed 5/23/13. Sudden onset of blurry vision in left eye. See dr? What could cause this?

Yes, see your Dr. : The pituitary region is adjacent to the optic nerve. In fact, the surgery is done to keep the tumor from pushing against the optic nerve and causing visual problems. If you have new vision problems, you need to have it checked out particularly. Swelling of residual tumor, bleeding adjacent to the nerve are all considerations. ...Read more

I feel that my left eye is starting to bulge. What could cause this? I had a CT scan, would a tumor behind the eye have shown up?

OPtho Consult: I recommend you see an experienced ophthalmologist. Eye bulging can come from a number of cause including autoimmune diseases such as graves disease. An MRI could be considered if the cat scan was negative and no clinical cause can be determined on physical exam. ...Read more

Can sinusitis be a cause of swollen optic nerves in both eyes? Scheduled for an MRI but very nervous hoping its not a brain tumor. Thanks!

Highly unlikely: In rare cases, very severe sinusitis could affect the blood supply or blood drainage of the optic nerves. However, a person with this problem would likely have other symptoms as well, such as severe headache, other cranial nerve palsies or frank meningitis. ...Read more

Is radiation for a squameous cell cancer tumor behind eye on optic nerve next to brain safe or could it cause necrosis of brain. Do I need proton?

Is radiation for a squameous cell cancer tumor behind eye on optic nerve
 next to brain safe or could it cause necrosis of brain. Do I need proton?

Palliative: Retrobulbar optic nerve involvement with metastatic tumor rare. Squamous malignancies are very few in that area. Chemo and RT given have mostly been palliative. Gamma knife therapy might be better than trying proton beam. With RT and chemo results in general have not been that encouraging. ...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

An eye doctor is you: Eye doctor is your best source to answer this question. Unless you have headaches or any neurological symptoms, it is unlikely that your eye problem is due to a brain tumor. If the eye problem persists or gets worse you need to go see your doctor again and ask him this question. ...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...?

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

My eye doctor told me that papilledema (i don't have) often accompanies visual symptoms (vision loss, photopsia) caused by brain tumors. Why is this?

My eye doctor told me that papilledema (i don't have) often accompanies visual symptoms (vision loss, photopsia) caused by brain tumors. Why is this?

Eye = external CNS: The eye is the only externalized part of the central nervous system. Papilledema, swelling of the optic disc, is due to elevated intracranial pressure (icp) at the level of the lamina cribrosa, where the intraocular pressure (iop), if lower than the icp, permits swelling of the nerve fiber layer. Brain tumors or idiopathic intracranial hypertension (iih) can cause papilledema and visual loss. ...Read more

I have eds and i sweat from my head/face/chest like crazy! i was diagnosed with psuedophytocytoma. Pseudo bc they couldn't find a tumor. Cause?

AutonomicDysfunction: Many people with hypermobility type eds have problems with bothersome sweating (hyperhidrosis). They also can have changes in how the heart responds to changes in position that can causing racing pulse similar to pheochromocytoma. The cause is not clearly known, but may be due to the blood vessels being too flexible tricking the body into sensing a low blood pressure. ...Read more
