Does anyone know if there is a link between neuroblastoma and infant seizures my son was recently diagnosed with both?

Is there a link between epileptic seizures, brain tumours and ms? I have symptoms for a tumour and MS and i'm very worried, i'm due an MRI scan soon
Causes of a seizure: Sometimes we find the cause of a seizure, sometimes we do not. It is possible a seizure could be caused by a brain tumor or MS. But brain tumor is a rare diagnosis, and MS rarely causes seizures. It is a good idea to have the MRI done. That will help answer the question of what the cause of the seizure is, and it is within the standard of care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
