I just went to the ENT and had a CT scan of my head. Would it show if anything was wrong like tumors or anyuresms in the brain?

In brief: Yes and maybe
Ct scans will show tumors, but may or may not show aneurysms, depending on the technique used.

In brief: Yes and no
Large tumors would be seen on ct w/ contrast.
Small ones may not be. Aneurysms are very difficult to see on noncontrast ct unless they are enormous.
