Is it possible to diagnose a brain tumour just by looking at the patient's eyes?

In brief: Possible

Eyes can give clues to a brain tumor, the most common sign is papilledema.
This is an indicator of increased brain pressure, though often other symptoms or signs neurolgically can make us concerned. We typically cannot tell you what type of cancer is present.
