Brain Tumor (Definition)

Brain cancer refers to cancer located in the brain. It can occur from a metastasis from a tumor in another part of the body or can originate in the brain. Symptoms of brain cancer include headaches, weakness, dizziness, seizures, and blurry vision. It can sometimes be asymptomatic as, for example, in patients with small cell lung cancer. It is always best to use MRI with contrast to make an evaluation, since using a CT can cause you to miss ...Read more

I have really bad nose bleeds that would last for 10-25 minutes and then I would have a headache that last a day or two. And I don't know what's wrong. Could it be a brain tumor?

Check: Also have a complete blood count (CBC), to make sure that you have not become anemic from the bleeding and to check your platelets, which are the cells that help with clotting. If the bleeding is only a small amount it maybe from dryness, you can use over the counter normal saline spray. This also happens with nasal steroids. Have it checked with your primary care doctor ...Read more

Im 19, my nose has  been bleeding all day, and  I have a lot of nasuea for past few days, morning and day, and im thinking I have a brain tumor, im scared?

Cancer not likely: Cancers, including brain tumors, are uncommon in 19 year olds. Except for specific nasal tumors or for leukemias, nose bleeds are not associated with cancer and certainly not with brain tumos. Nausea has many causes, of which brain tumors are one although this is rare as a first sign. I doubt you have a brain tumor, but see a doctor to allay your anxiety. ...Read more

Hi. I have a brain tumor and i just now had a nose bleed and coughed up blood. What do i do?

Hi. I have a  brain tumor and i just now had a nose bleed and coughed up blood. What do i do?

Epistaxis: Unless you know something I don't, nose bleed is not related to brain tumor. Nose bleeds are common in winter or with irritation due to colds. Sometimes blood runs down back of throat and is coughed up. Should stop when bleeding stops. Use cool compress and rest. If you have afrin (oxymetazoline) nasal spray put a few squirts up the nostril. This works very well. ...Read more

I nose bleed sometimes, I get head aches too and sometimes I pass out for a few seconds when I stand up. Could it be a brain tumor?

Extremely unlikely: I see thousands of patients a year and the two most feared conditions are a brain tumor or cancer. Of these thousands of patients that i see with symptoms like yours and much worse it is extraordinarily rare that anyone has cancer or brain tumor. There are so many simple explanations for what you're complaining about. I would strongly suggest that you see an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Is chronic nose bleed, slurred speech, frequent headaches a sign of brain tumor?

Very Concerning!: When people have slurred speach it is always very important to have that evaluated right away. It becomes more worrisome when there is a headache involved. It sounds like a person with those symptoms should see their primary care md without delay! if the symptoms are sudden in onset, then that demands an er visit urgently. ...Read more

Had CT scan for brain tumor or bleed friday afternoon. Will I have to agonize all weekend? Is no news good news or was it just too late on a friday?

Don't assume: One would hope for a call, but lack of one doesn't mean anything--so don't read too much into it. Medical staff can drop the ball and leave patients in the dark, especially late on a friday afternoon. Definitely call the office monday morning to be sure. ...Read more
