But that does not seem to be the case at the moment. ...Read more

I get like these shocks in my left side of my head /brain is that bad i had a tumor when i was young  it went away ?

It depends,,,: This likely depends on the type of tumor you had, among other things. If it was benign, like a meningioma, it probably doesn't need anything.

My husband abused me for years hit me hard in the head enough to split it open several times. I had surgery to remove a tumor. Can it come back?

If a tumor developed by history it does not appear to be a glioblastoma since you would have had RT and knowledge of a high incidence of local recurrence. The tumor you described sounds like a scalp lesion, either benign or malignant and there is a high incidence of local recurrence depending on the path ...Read more
