Pubic Area Tumor Symptoms
I have 1cm intradural extramedullary tumor at L4, likely schwannoma, . I feel cord area becomes inflamed periodically with more symptoms. Possible?
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor".

Could a symptom of a brain tumor be intermittent tingly sensations all over the body (not in one specific area)?

Can a spinal cord tumor cause spine pain (pain in 1 or 2 vertebrae when pressing on area & laying down)? Would pain be the only symptom?
Brain tumor symptoms.? I have dull pressure. On left side top head and my left eye is foggy and. I feel pressure around that area?

If yes, that is more concerning and you should see a doctor right away. Some eye problems can cause head pain and pressure. ...Read more
