If you have a sustained weight loss, than over time your body will decrease the torso or waist area and you can decrease your size. Sustained duration of weight loss will be best for the results of decreasing your body circumference. ...Read more

See your doctor.: A lump under your arm can be an abscess (infection) or a tumor or a cyst. You should be seen by a doctor to make the proper diagnosis. ...Read more

If : If you have never had previous surgery on the abdomen it would be unusual to have a hernia of that size in that location. Having said that, based on your height and weight it is more likely that you have a hernia (rather than a tumor) or more likely a "rectus diastasis" which comes from a thinning out of tissues under the skin and could be thought of as an early hernia. A very brief exam in your doctor's office should be able to differentiate between the two. ...Read more

Get information: You could have a condition called neurofibromatosis in which benign tumors arise from peripheral branches of the nerve supply. This is inherited (do other members of your family or ancestry have this?). See your internist or perhaps a dermatologist for more information. ...Read more

Can tingling in arms and legs that comes and goes be a symptom of a brain tumor?

Unlikely: I suppose that this is possible but this would not be a typical presentation of a brain tumor. Many other things are much more likely to cause these symptoms. ...Read more

Headaches: You have a myriad of signs & sx which could represent primary neuromuscular, hypochondriacal, infectious, degenerative, or auto-immune diseases. A primary brain tumor is unlikely. It sounds like you consulted a neurologist, wi no specific findings. Are your sx episodic, periodic? Do they only occur at home? At work? Can you associate them with any specific activities? Need more information here. ...Read more

maybe: Brain tumors are not common in people your age, but they can occur. You describe neurological problems which need to be addressed: diagnosed and then treated, depending on what they are. See your physician for a referral to a neurologist. ...Read more
