Mri scan tumor

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan 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 f tn Hi, last year I had an MRI scan. I was having it as the Dr was looking to see if I had an AVM on the brain, I get a lot of headaches and have an AVM on my right forearm. When I went to see the Dr he told me my results, he said there is a malformation there but it isnt an AVM. He then pointed to the temporal lobes and said they are low. I should of asked him what that meant, but I never ask questions when Im there, I just say to myself I should of asked this and I should of asked that.
Avatar n tn It is my understanding that the CAT scan can not pick up certain things and I am concernd about a tumor being missed because I can not obtain an MRI. Can you please comment on the differences between a CAT scan and an MRI and how concerned I should be about not being able to obtain an MRI? Can you suggest the best way to proceed with getting a diagnosis given the complications of having a defibrillator?
Avatar n tn Would a CT scan of the brain detect a tumor on the 3rd nerve. I didn't have an MRI it was a CT.
1545021 tn?1322477485 I also was just recently diagnosed with a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor and was wondering if a small tumor was missed on my brain MRI because it was done w/o contrast. Anyways, thank you for the reply. Maybe I'll ask my neurologist if he thinks I need one.
Avatar f tn Yes, a CT scan or MRI would almost always show a brain tumor. Are you afraid you have one? Do you have any symptoms and is your doctor recommending this imaging?
Avatar f tn Can I get an answer to my question?

Avatar f tn It is best to see what the MRI says before you start trying to figure if anything is misdiagnosed.
Avatar n tn ve been told that contrast is injected only when something is seen on a normal scan to give further detail. I had my mri results reviewed by a radiologist and two neurologists just in case someone failed to spot something, is it safe to assume it's not a tumor? Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 44 year old female that had an MRI done 3 years ago due to a long history of vascular migraines. They found on the MRI that I had multiple lesions. Well, I have been also having problems with ear pain for the past 8 years and just went to see an ENT this week. She said that my ear looked perfect inside, but wanted to see the MRI to look at to see if there might be something else causing the pain in my one ear.
Avatar m tn This is a copy of the MRI Scan results which i was sent. Can anyone tell me what some/all what this means? Findings: There is a very unusual anomaly affecting the left paraterminal gyrus and subcallosal area. These are enlarged and project down towards the left side of the optic chiasm. The medial portion of the anterior perforated substance is also affected. The sella is large and substantially empty. The remainder of the brain is normal.

Avatar f tn Hi, I had a CT scan done at the emergency room this morning, It came back normal. I want to know if it is possible to miss a pitutary tumor on a CT scan. I have abnormal hormone levels, no period for 6 months, blurred vision and a smashing headache. I feel 'Drunk like' all the time. Should I push for a MRI? Are they better at detected tumors?
Avatar m tn I am sure MRI will be helpful for you and for more suggestion you must consult with the expert doctor.

Avatar f tn Hi, I fully understand your frustration in not getting a diagnosis. I'm going through the same situation myself. I'm pretty sure that an MRI is more accurate then a ct scan for picking up pituitary tumors, but maybe look it up online to confirm it, as I'm not qualified to give advice about the different tests.
Avatar f tn Ultrasound is another way to go. It will see if the tumor is just a fluid-filled cyst or a solid tumor. Solid tumor, then the next procedure would be a biopsy. I'm no professional, this is only my opinion.
Avatar f tn Ok so I have had my MRI/MRA and I have a berry aneurysm which has a diameter of 1.5 mm My doctor says this isn't a problem as they have to grow many more millimeters until they rupture He says for me to have checkups every year Does this sound ok?
264121 tn?1313029456 Have you ever noticed (or maybe this just happens for me) but, have you ever noticed that whenever you're scared about something, something happens to inject a little humor into it? So tomorrow morning I'm going to get the PET scan that I beg borrowed and pleaded for at the hematologists office. You know, the one that I harangued that poor nurse prac for to death?
Avatar n tn That happened to me when i was 10 yrs old. The doctor thought i had a tumor, so i had a MRI, CT scan, and a spinal tap done. Luckily it wasnt a tumor. I got diagnosed with Pseudotumor cerebri, also known as Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. Ive had it for 10 years now. But did everything turn out fine for you??
Avatar f tn Hello, I spent ten years going to an ENT with the same symptoms If you are concerned ask for a cats scan or MRI. I was diagnosed with a pituitary Tumor after the tumor started pressing on my optic nerve and i had to call 911. The ENT missed diagnosed it for ten years so it kept growing now it is wrapped around the cavernous sinus.I had surgery and radiation i have been doing great since 2001. My advice is to be your own advocate get a CAT scan or an MRI. Then you won't have to worry anymore.
1139187 tn?1355706647 THey detect pituitary tumor through MRI, also they can check indirectly by doing a check of your visual field (this may be affected in case of pituitary adenoma).
