Nose bleeds and brain tumors is it bad?

Possibly: Unless you have a brain tumor affecting the skull base and involving the blood vessels to your nose, nose bleeds are probably not related to a brain tumor.

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

Can nosebleeds be linked to brain tumors?

No correlation.: No correlation. Only possible (rare) connection is a torrentous nosebleed years after trans-sphenoidal pituitary tumor surgery - as a consequence of carotid artery pseudo-aneurysm formation from intra-op vessel injury, which can cause bleeding years later.

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?

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.

Could someone get a brain tumor in your nose?

Could someone get a brain tumor in your nose?

No: Brain tumors whether benign such as meningioma or even the more aggressive tumors such as glioblastoma remain confined to the brain. Even the most aggressive tumor will not breakthrough the cribriform plate to enter the nasal cavity. Here lesions arise in nasal mucosa or are from sinuses

A spot on my cheek and nose keep randomly tingling. Could that mean I have a brain tumor?

A spot on my cheek and nose keep randomly tingling. Could that mean I have a brain tumor?

Highly doubtful: If there was a tumor in your brain or any other brain problem causing your symptoms, I would expect the symptoms to be there all the time.

What kind of headaches do brain tumors produce!? Preassure on temple area and nose area!?

What kind of headaches do brain tumors produce!? Preassure on temple area and nose area!?

Headache: There are a variety of etiologies for headaches and most are not related to brain tumors. Brain tumors can provide a variety of symptoms, including none at all. Headaches from tumors can be described differently by different people and may be related to size, location and an individual's perception.

I'm scared I have a brain tumor or brain is bleeding, what are the for sure signs of this?

I'm scared I have a brain tumor or brain is bleeding, what are the for sure signs of this?

Brain tumor: A bleed in the brain is usually manifested with the onset of a severe sudden headache, often described as the "worst headache of my life". A tumor can be more subtle with initially headaches, memory confusion, sometimes speech problems and walking difficulties.

My son is 11 since he was like 3 he has been having random nose bleed and migrains, he also grinds his teeth is this a sign of a brain tumor? Am concerned as I have had thyroid cancer.

My son is 11 since he was like 3 he has been having random nose bleed and migrains, he also grinds his teeth is this a sign of a brain tumor? Am concerned as I have had thyroid cancer.

Not likely: Nose bleeds and migraines are vascular issues most likely. Tooth grinding can be a sign of anxiety and/or a bad bite. But let's get your son examined by a physicians and a dentist to get an accurate diagnosis so his problems can be treated.

I smell gas in my nose for the past couple weeks I have had I might still have a sinus infec. Take amox.500 mg only 2 so far. Can this be a brain tumor?

I smell gas in my nose for the past couple weeks I have had I might still have a sinus infec. Take amox.500 mg only 2 so far. Can this be a brain tumor?

Doubt: Jumping to the conclusion of brain tumor is extreme, especially with lack of any other symptoms. However, sinusitis is a reasonable assumption to treat in cases of cacosmia (strange smell). Continue to follow with your doctor as he works through this. As you alluded, 2 doses is too early.

I don't have nose stuffiness but frontal sinus is tender and I've been feeling a bit dizzy and heavy headed lately - related? Brain tumor? Scared

I don't have nose stuffiness but frontal sinus is tender and I've been feeling a bit dizzy and heavy headed lately - related? Brain tumor? Scared

Probably not: Your symptoms are probably related to the sinus issues that you discuss. Brain tumors in most cases tend to present with focal neurologic symtpoms (weakness or numbness) or seizures. If it does not improve, check with your doctor. There may be some tests that can be done to ensure it is not a brain tumor.

Would a brain tumor be soft on your head?

Would a brain tumor be soft on your head?

No: The brain is encased in the protective bony skull. Thus a tumor of the brain would not be felt as soft if you palpated your scalp.

I have had two head/brain CT scans, can that cause brain tumor?

I have had two head/brain CT scans, can that cause brain tumor?

Not likely: While in theory any radiation might cause a tumor, the amount of radiation in a diagnostic ct scan is highly unlikely to lead to a brain tumor.

Left side head pain and forehead pain. These is the symptoms of brain tumor?

Unlikely: Since you also have forehead pain this is far more likely to be a sinus headache. Obviously I can't tell over the internet. Brain tumors are rare, estimated 20/100, 000 people. Of those, 7/100, 000 are cancer.
