In brief: Why are you worried?

It's not like the old days.
I remember reading about a young man in the old, way-pre-CT-&-MRI days who had vague headaches & confusion for several months who 1 day just screamed, grabbed his head, & fell over dead. These days, with modern imaging techniques, brain tumors are almost always found before that happens. Why? Do you think you have one but are afraid to ask? Are you the worrying kind?
