Mri scan of brain tumor

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of brain tumor


Avatar f tn A CT scan and MRI are pretty much the tests that will find a tumor- if you've had 3 scans that have been normal I would think everything is okay.
Avatar n tn I am not sure if you will get any abnormal MRI scan report. But if one has to consider differentials, a temporal lobe tumor may show such features. Temporal lobe lesions or tumors lead to various sensory experiences including olfactory hallucinations. It is important to rule out any pathology in the paranasal sinuses as well. Bleeding from nasal cavity is not characteristic of a brain tumor.
Avatar n tn hi i 17 years old and ive been getting fainting spells/black outs accopanied by severe nose bleeds and the most horrific smell of chlorine/bleach in the back of my nose and throat that makes me feel extremly sick i have met with a genral medical constultant and he sent me for an MRI and he gave me a referal to the top neurologist in the country and we are waiting to hear the results from the scan....
Avatar m tn Only a CT scan or MRI will show if you have a brain tumor. Occasionally it will show up on an X-ray but not very likely. My father had a malignant brain tumor also. The doctors removed it and he was fine - but the stitches broke loose and sadly my Dad went into a coma and died. (1987) You are still young and brain surgery has come a long way. Please see a specialist and don't let it go too long. If it is malignant, it will keep growing.
Avatar n tn I had a mri scan 8 years ago because i had tingling in my fingers and face, a non cancerous tumor was found on the lining of my brain and i was told it was slow growing and not to worry they would keep an eye on its progress if any. I was never sent for and just recently ive been having headache daily and the tingling has now gone to my feet also ive got ringing in my ears and other sings.
Avatar n tn At this point, we may be considering a tension headache , headache secondary to an eye problem and a sinus headache. An MRI scan may be able to help.Let me assure you that this does not sound like a brain tumor.A brain tumor is fairly uncommon.Avoid any unnecessary worries. Do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn ) and other anxiety-related symptoms, I wouldn't think that you have a brain tumor of any sort, given the initial presentation of symptoms, though I'm surprised your doctor didn't just order an MRI--do you know why they didn't? Pressure behind the eye, coupled with a few other symptoms you told them you were experiencing, would certainly justify an MRI of your head. If anything, the beta-blocker you are on is probably causing some of your additional symptoms--you might want to look into this.
Avatar f tn They did another ct scan which showed up a shadow so they did a mri and was dx with a small tumor in the frontal lobe affecting her speech, memory etc. They have given her medication to control the seizures and released her telling her to have another mri in 4 weeks when theyll decide what treatment is needed. They may do a biopsy to find out what kind of cells are there and possibly surgery. If not surgery what other kind of treatment is there?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a brain tumor about a month ago. I had a MRI and CT scan to confirm the location and the type of tumor that I have. My neurologist said this was the second time he has seen this type of tumor and wants me to go to see a neurosurgeon. The problem is if he doesn't know what to say or do about my tumor. What makes him so sure a neurosurgeon will. I have a lipoma of the Splenium of the corpus callosum. I don't know how to handle this or how to find the right doctor.
Avatar f tn And if so, if it didn't show up in April of '09, might that mean I have an aggressive form of brain cancer? I just had a baby and the thought of leaving her breaks me.
Avatar m tn What is your advice about this situation? Should I try and get a referral for a brain scan or not? Would a brain scan be of any benefit in this situation such as an MRI or CATSCAN? I am not sure if it is a brain injury that has been aggravated by the cigarette poisons or not. I am not sure if it is a tumor. Would a brain scan determine any diagnosis? Thanks for your help.
Avatar m tn Respect to opt Brief visual loss could be because of location of pituitary gland with respect to optic chiasma. An MRI brain would be needed to assess if there is a tumor and its size and location. Fundus examination to check the pressure effects if any. Rule out hypertension, diabetes etc. Check with your neurologist immediately for the needful.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor about a week ago and told him everything he said floaters arent uncommon and then took a microscope with a light on it and scaned my eyes shinging the light directly in he said everything looked fine YET IM STILL NOT CONVINCED should i ask for an mri or ct scan i have a eye appointment on the 19th of april should i wait till i go see the eye doctor? WHAT SHOULD I DO SOMEONE ANSWER PLEASE.
Avatar m tn it doesnt look like i have a brain tumor or blood clost just a very unusual combination of symptoms that are the same/simular too. sorry to write so many times but i have spent 30,000 on medical bills already this year possible death seemed more inviting lol... but all looks ok, they still want me to get an MRI since some symptoms arent explainable. thank you for taking your time to read and respond!!
Avatar n tn For about 6 months after my surgery my mom had to rush me to the emergency room for random aches and pains because I thought that I was dieing if she didnt and had horrible anxiety about getting a disease or dieing at such a young age. When I was a sophomore I convinced myself that I had a brain tumor because i had a headache on one side of my head. I still tend to get this headache but I'm not sure if its a real problem, or if I get it from thinking and worrying about it.
Avatar f tn This headache could be due to raised intracranial pressure and lowering of temporal lobes on MRI due to brain herniation, which is a consequence of very high intracranial pressure. Herniation could result from many factors causing mass effect and increase intracranial pressure including traumatic brain injury, stroke and brain tumor. You need to consult a neurologist immediately with this concern, as this can be fatal. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn i had mri scan of my brian 3 weeks ago and now want me to have another with the dye injected first . does this mean they have found somehing wrong ?
Avatar n tn A pet scan hit on this as a hot spot so mri with and without contrast confirmed. Mri showed alot of sinus issues and possible "mass" so they focused on it. Sinus specialist agreed not the cause. He saw a neurosurgeon before who thought the sinus dr would "get to the bottom" of this. I think she was so focused on how bad his sinus's were that the real issue is the brain. She did the neuro check and he's rescheduled for Feb.
589816 tn?1332980371 He tested me for some things that came out negative so he went on to order an MRI of my spine and brain. The one of my brain came back as follows Findings: There is a 2.0 x 1.2 x 2.0 cm mass in the suprasellar cistern which demonstrates intense increased signal on T1-weighted images and intermediate signal on FLAIR and T2-weighted images and no significant enhancement. The mass appears to be separate from the pituitary gland, and anterior and separate from the hypothalamus.
Avatar n tn I had a CT scan and it came back normal so now the neurologist is doing an MRI. If I do have a brain tumor what are the chances of the CT scan coming back normal? Or is this just un heard of? And is it possible to have a brain tumor without headaches? I would really appreciate an answer as soon as possible thanks. One other thing how come I can't post my questions in the doctor part?
Avatar m tn If they suspected brain tumor you would have had a CT scan or MRI. Doctors do not want to risk lawsuits, so if anything, they are more likely to over-test patients to play it safe and protect themselves. One more thing, do NOT Google your symptoms. Reading these symptoms you can convince yourself that you have 5 of the deadliest diseases known to mankind, and by the time you're done reading you need to be peeled from the ceiling.
Avatar n tn Excluding gross negligence in the interpretation of the MRI does this rule out a brain tumor? Should I ask specifically for a contrasted MRI? My GP does not seem concerned but I would not get to see a neurologist before two months (long waiting list). Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I had surgery to remove it. I had my 6 month MRI scan to show that it was a 100% clear of a re-growth. Just a few months later I became very sick again and new something was very wrong. Went to emerg had a ct and an mri to find out it had grown back to its original size along with a cyst growing right beside it. The tumor was very aggresive and needed to have brain surgery right away. Just a couple months ago I had my 3 month scan which came back a 100% clear.
Avatar n tn If you had a seizure, why didn't they do a EEG immediately. A sm-tumor is always questionable so repeats of mri are a great tool. Some tumors turn out to be cysts. a seizure generally affects more than one limb & also the eyes even when mild. Get copies of mri for files to track yourself. Any labs done or just found accidently from vascular searching? Scarey & would hold off on surgery. Maybe Dr meant paralysis if he did procedure?
Avatar f tn Whilst bending down and laughing and sneezing, I occasionally experience a sharp pain near the front of my head(around my left temple/forehead) There are no issues whilst not doing those activities(so far) I am about to go for an MRI for other reasons(I have had a heart surgery since I was a kid and I need to check-up) Will MRI detect any brain tumors(if there are any) Are my symptoms indicative of this(does brain tumor symptoms come and go?
Avatar f tn My father is in the hospital at the present time - Cat scan revealed swelling of the brain and possible tumor - MRI revealed white matter and lesions - nothhing definitive - patterns are nothing that the neurologist has seen before.
Avatar m tn I have a son that is 15 they said they was doing testing to see if the doctor needed to send him to be tested for a brain tumor by doing a mri or a brain scan to see it then a couple of days ago they call me from where he is and tell me they felt it by rubbing his head so of I cant see it without a brain scan orvmri how can u feel it by rubbing someones head
