In brief: Neurosurgeon
Actually, either would be fine, but if you have a primary brain tumor, or a solitary brain metastasis a neurosurgeon will probably be needed to resect it.
Usually an MRI will be obtained first, and this along with your symptoms and physical exam will lead to the proper diagnosis and treatment.
