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

Is it for sure a MRI will find it if I got tmj? Christmas is coming and I need to know if it is and not tumor in parotid gland. Lot of jaw clicking

CBCT vs. MRI imaging: Allows a TMJ specialist to look inside your TMJ joints without performing surgery. The MRI views of soft tissues, doesn't give the specialist as detailed a picture as necessary of bone structure; and this is exactly what's needed to diagnose TMJ disease and plan the proper treatment. Hope it helps. ...Read more

Seek advice: You won't know, necessarily. Vertigo is a sensation of spinning or motion of the person or the environment, while dizziness is not a sense of motion but lightheadedness or feeling floaty or off kilter. There can be neurologic issues, inner ear problems, visual problems, psychologic issues, cardiovascular problems, and many other causes. See an ENT, neurologist, and possibly cardiolologist. ...Read more

It's like an internal clicking I hear when I walk inside the top of my head almost like someone is tapping a coin against my skull, what is it?

It's like an internal clicking I hear when I walk inside the top of my head almost like someone is tapping a coin against my skull, what is it?

Tapping noise: skull: Your body is mostly liquid, and as you may know from swimming with your head under water, sounds in water are transmitted loudly. The noise you describe is probably from a joint in your shoulder or hip which may be "heard" while walking. It probably is not serious, but if it continues, see an orthopedic doctor or an internist to determine the cause. ...Read more

Is there a test I could do at home to test inner ear I have a weird lightheaded feeling swaying sometimes drs say anxiety, worried tumor inner ear?

Is there a test I could do at home to test inner ear I have a weird lightheaded feeling swaying sometimes drs say anxiety, worried tumor inner ear?

BAER: Test can exclude the presence of a small acoustic neuroma
if the test is normal. Medications used for allergies can cause lightheartedness. Dizziness is a complicated matter, I see about 10 patients a month in Kentucky who have difficult to diagnosis dizziness. I wish there was a simple home test. Unsteadiness with eyes closed that improves with eyes open is often due to low B12 ( ...Read more

I've been on zithromax since 1/21 for inner ear and sinus infection, but still have the dizziness, when will it go away or could it be a brain tumor?

I've been on zithromax since 1/21 for inner ear and sinus infection, but still have the dizziness, when will it go away or could it be a brain tumor?

Ear infection: Inner ear infections can affect balance. This is a complex system and usually will recover slower than the actual infection, sometimes as long as 3-4 weeks. If symptoms persist longer than this timeframe, reevaluation is indicated by your treating physician. Brain tumors of the inner ear can cause dizziness as a presenting symptom, but most of these tumors present with hearing loss. ...Read more

If I had a tumor in my inner ear, what would the symptoms be? Would a ear infec. With roaring& some dizziness be it? Would it be constant?

Hearing & Balance: Tumors of the inner ear are not common. The most common tumor of the ear would be an acoustic neuroma which is benign and not cancer. Most present with hearing loss - usually gradual but can be sudden. Tinnitus (abnormal sound in the ear) is possible as well. Dizziness is a very uncommon presenting symptom because these tumors usually grow very slowly the body compensates for the loss of balance. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with possible minieres disease. However the doctor wants me to go for a mri, what are my chances of having a tumor in my inner ear?

I have possible menieres disease, because of constant ear infections. But there is a chance for a tumor. What are the symptoms for inner ear tumor?

Unclear: 3 distinct issues. Ear infections, menieres syndrome and inner ear tumor. None of these issues has anything to do with the other. Menieres is fluctuating hearing loss with tinnitus and vertigo (comes and goes). Ear infections are pus in the middle ear leading to severe pain and hearing loss. An inner ear tumor (acoustic neuroma) presents with progressive difficulty hearing. Please see an ENT doc. ...Read more

Would a person know if they had tumor or neuro or inner ear issues after 5 yrs lightheaded daily sometimes swaying feelings dr think anxiety?

Not sure otologic: 5 years of light headedness does not sound like an inner ear problem. The classical symptom of inner ear disease or vestibular central disease is vertigo, (spinning). If there is no hearing loss, I doubt that you have inner ear disease. Light headedness may be low blood pressure, thyroids dysfunction, low blood sugar or other metabolic diseases. See your primary for a complete medical workup. ...Read more

Are face tumors deadly? My boyfriends face is swelling for the past 2 days&hes at the hospital connected to tubes of all kinds&a breathing machine.

Not face tumor: Malignant tumors of the face, that is of skin, when spreading, do involve lymph nodes of neck or go to lung but do not cause facial swelling. This is from output failure from veins and lymphatics draining face and most likely due to a superior vena cava syndrome due to blockage of main vein in chest. This requires his need for respirator secondary to blockage of airway from facial swelling. ...Read more

I have ETD. I am a runner. When I run lately I hear a clicking sound in my inner ear which stops if I walk. Is it harmful to keep running?

I have ETD. I am a runner. When I run lately I hear a clicking sound in my inner ear which stops if I walk. Is it harmful to keep running?

ETD in runners: Your ENT specialist would be in a better position to answer this question knowing your medical history and having discussed treatment options. For a chronic condition like ETD, a regular activity like jogging shouldn't be too risky while a bit annoying. I would make sure you give yourself regular breaks to make sure your condition keeps returning to normal, while you seek additional advice. ...Read more

Feels like a egg on the side of my head I had it since I was younger but it grew a little bigger is it just the shape of my head or a tumor?

Feels like a egg on the side of my head I had it since I was younger but it grew a little bigger is it just the shape of my head or a tumor?

Impossible to tell: From a distance. Given what you say, far more likely just the shape of your head. Recommend research anatomy on line (including Google images), seek help worthy of your trust & after a careful exam & characterization of the "egg", consider imaging with Ultrasound, CAT scan or MRI to better characterize - IF judged worth both the cost & risks by BOTH you & the advisers you choose to work with. ...Read more

Since 3 months, sometimes I feel like a kind of pressure (no pain) on the left side on the top of my head, always on the same area. Is it tumor?

Since 3 months, sometimes I feel like a kind of pressure (no pain) on the left side on the top of my head, always on the same area. Is it tumor?

Unlikely: Head pressure, tension headaches are quite common in otherwise healthy people. It is not a serious symptom of anything like a tumor. Take some tylenol (acetaminophen) and it should settle down. Only if you have progressively increasing headaches is it worth getting concerned about. But that does not seem to be the case at the moment. ...Read more

If I hear water slogging around in my head, is that a tumor?

If I hear water slogging around in my head, is that a tumor?

No: If you hear water slogging it's more likely water in your ear than a tumor. Most head tumors have a growth or cause pain if they're inside your skull. Tilt your head to the side that's slogging, pull the ear back and up and shake your head vigorously- that will usually cause the water to drain. ...Read more

No tumor: Trauma is not a carcinogenic factor so that injuring ones head can not induce cancer formation. On the other hand trauma can induce a site of TGF-B and platelet derived growth factor and I've seen sites of trauma such a head, develop a hematoma followed by migration of tumor cells from a previous malignancy to the site of hematoma in the head or other site. ...Read more

I have a tumor in my head and I think I have MS also. Is there any hope for me?

Yes, can be helped.: The tumor could cause many neurological symptoms and needs to be managed as effectively as possible, depending on characteristics and pathology. Possible to have both a tumor and ms, but latter should be considered only if you have signs of clearcut demyelinating disease involving spinal cord, with a diagnostic spinal fluid profile, as brain lesions in presence of tumor could be misleading. ...Read more

Eus findings: 5 CM tumor in head of pancreas. What could it be? Should I be worried? What is likelihood it is malignant?

It can be cancer: You need to tell us the complete story. What has your doctor told you about this mass? It looks like you have had a biopsy done already. That should provide an answer. What did the biopsy reveal? If it was not successful, repeat ctscan in 2 months or repeat biopsy are the only two ways to find out what this tumor could be? Benign or malignant (neuroendocrine tumor or adenocarcinoma of pancreas? ...Read more
