Sudden right side headache with nose bleed can this be caused from my pituitary tumor (macroadenoma)?

Sudden right side headache with nose bleed can this be caused from my pituitary tumor (macroadenoma)?

Headache/nose bleed: Hello,
The answer to your question is yes but probably unlikely. Both of these symptoms could come from your pituitary tumor if the tumor undergoes aggressive growth. The tumor rests just behind your sphenoid sinus. I'm also assuming the tumor was not surgically removed at this point. See your ENT doctor who can perform an endoscopic exam and identify the reason for the nosebleed. ...Read more

I have a nose bleed 4 times this week and I also have a headache. What exactly could of cause this?

I have a nose bleed 4 times this week and I also have a headache. What exactly could of cause this?

Possible sinusitis: Without a physical exam, and more details, it is hard to say, but one possibility is a sinus infection - it is a common cause of frontal headaches and headaches "behind the eyes" - often a pressure like pain. The infection also affects the nasal mucosa which makes it more susceptible to nose bleeds. FYI if you are having nosebleeds, don't take aspirin, and try not to blow your nose hard! ...Read more

Nose bleed for the first time left nostril headache on the left side, little dizziness. What shall I do?

Nose bleed for the first time left nostril headache on the left side, little dizziness. What shall I do?

Nose bleed: Put a lot of ointment in the nose that bled. Usually nose bleeds will stop when you humidify the nose. Irrigate the nose with saline 50 cc each nostril 5 times a day. Use ocean nasal spray throughout the day. I would not worry about the dizziness. This probably occurred because you were scared about the nose bleed and hyperventilated. Good luck. Feel better! ...Read more

Throbbing headache in the same spot for a few days! Huge nose bleed today. Starting to really bother me. Could it be aTumor?

Throbbing headache in the same spot for a few days! Huge nose bleed today. Starting to really bother me. Could it be aTumor?

Nose bleed not tumor: Headaches are common, brain tumors are very rare. When brain tumors cause headaches they are usually constant (don't stop). A nose bleed is almost always caused by a broken blood vessel or a sore in the nostril. Sometimes medications like Advil (ibuprofen) or Aspirin make them worse. If they stop easily by sitting with head back, pressure and ice, no need to worry. If not, seek Urgent Care. ...Read more

Starting last week I had a headache for 4 days on the forth day I checked my BP and it was 149\99, the following day I had my first nose bleed and now I noticed blood in my urine... I am a 32 yr old female with liver function problems, should I be worried

All: All of the above symptoms warrant a medical evaluation. Your headaches could be an effect of your high blood pressure. The blood in your urine may represent a urinary tract infection (UTI) or could be secondary to low platelets which could be an effect of your liver issues. Regardless a visit with a medical professional is in order right away.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Check it out: The first things are not too worrisome but any time you have a nosebleed for no reason and this is new for you, you should have it checked. Could be nothing, could be severe hypertension, abnormal bleeding tendency...The nasal mucosa is served by 3 arteries so even if it's "just a nosebleed" you can lose a lot of blood if it isn't stopped. ...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

If not, see your physician. Either should be able to point you in the right direction for proper diagnosis of the cause of the nose bleeds. ...Read more
