Very scared my new onset of daily headaches means I have a gbm although I had a clear head scan dec 2012. How long do gbm's take to develop? Anxious

It is extremely unlikely for a symptomatic primary tumor to delvelop in only 2 months especially if the symptoms are similar to prior episodes. ...Read more

It's due to a germ and will respond quickly to antibiotics. Unusual rashes are best seen by an MD to help determine the cause and the best treatment. For now was skin in sensitive skin mild soap/water. Neosporin to scabs. ...Read more
