In brief: Not so simple

Neither you nor your doctors can diagnose brain tumor so easily.
I actually do not even know the meaning of this word...Palinopsia. So just calm down. Unless you have a serious neurological symptom like a seizure or loss of neuro function like paralysis, you can not be too concerned about having a brian tumor. I hope this will help you get through this next few days before you see your neurologis.

In brief: Palinopsia

Images persist long after seeing them. Many different causes such as tumor, seizures, visual pathways lesions.
A brain MRI is a must and you must see the neurologist.
