Am having neck pain and earaches and headacheseveryday I think I might have an brain tumor or cancer plus shoulder pain by my upper back pains I want to go have an cat scan but I already been for other things
Cluster of symptoms: Hard to say with a general cluster of symptoms what may be happening, but if they are significant they should be evaluated. Conditions such as brain tumor are quite rare and ct/mri scans may be ordered by a physician after a thorough history and exam. Don't ignore your symptoms, but be cautious about jumping to the most severe conclusion without more of a work-up. Hope this helps!See 1 more doctor answer

I'm 21 been having ear pain n dizziness for about 4 months. There no water or infections in my ear. Is this a brain tumor?
Tumor origins: Brain tumors, like any neoplasms in the body, can be induced by an interplay of genetic and environmental factors. In other words, there are inherited predispositions in some cases. One environmental factors known to induce some brain tumors is radiation exposure. Unfortunately, there is much that we still do not know about how these tumors start.
Most are random: All tumors result from accumulated genetic mutations that give a growth advantage to clones of cells. Most strike at random without clear environmental risks. A few familial syndrome (turcot's, neurofibromatosis, von hippel-lindau, lifraumeni, some rarities) feature increased risk for one or more types of brain tumors. If you have a brain tumor, nothing that you did caused it. Wishing you the best.
Dumb luck: A few genetic syndromes put people at increased risk for brain tumors. Beyond this, we almost never find a cause. Tumors result from random mutations that become propagated. No one's to blame. Scientists who build careers by demonstrating new truths have failed to identify anything credible. The cell-phones claim has no rational or empirical basis. Best wishes.
There are none: Brain tumors rarely develop extra neural metastases. They are graded based on pathology. Gx cannot be graded, g1 well differentiated, g2 moderately differentiated, g3 poorly differentiated, g4 undifferentiated. The reason why there is rarely metastasis is because the brain does not have a well-developed lymphatic drainage system. Hope this helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Hmm: Brain tumor will give lots of symptoms like headache, dizziness, memory problems and most oftenly seizures. These symptoms will be based on the size, location and type of tumor. Brain imaging will most of the time give a clear picture but sometimes brain biopsy may be required to confirm the diagnosis.
Brain tumor: This depends upon the size and location of the tumor, as well as whether the tumor is benign or malignant (cancer). A small benign tumor may exist for years and you may never know it is there. Even a large benign tumor, that may grow very slowly over a period of years, may produce no symptoms even though it is the size of a golf ball or larger.See 1 more doctor answer
"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
