Brain tumor??

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi I'm 16 year old male and I've been getting these symptoms for weeks now..

I get dizzy like 3 times a day. 

I feel pain in my head. 

I think I'm loosing my memory. 

I feel numbness and tingling  in my left feet and my head too 

 Is this a brain tumor or what? What's the cause if these symptoms?  I've been to the doctor, he said that it's probably the inner ear. But I don't think that's the case.. I'll be doing a MRI scan on Sunday. Hope nothing too serious.

    I'm sure that your doctor will be able to put your mind at rest once the scans and tests are completed. What really troubles me is the amount of young teenagers who are turning to this site for advice and reassurance instead of turning to their parents or families. I'm sure that you will be fine and just hope that you receive the love and support that you need from your family.

    Brain tumours are rare but it's perhaps time to see your GP/family physician.

    I wish you well.

    It could be, it could also be a pituitary tumor

    Which is a type of brain tumor

    But a little less serious

    It is commonplace for gp's to dismiss brain tumors

    As headaches are also quite normal

    Or so I think

    But if your worried about headaches mixed with loss of balance

    And or memory loss

    I think you should be concerned and am glad you are getting an MRI

    You obviously have a good doctor
