I am very scared I may have a brain tumor

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I'm a 16yr old male who has “anxiety". Now for the past 3 weeks I've been getting these sharp pains around my head everywhere. They were headaches at first and then some became just pains. Now i went to the doctor and they said its just stress and I should be fine but I'm not stressing about anything right now! This pain is consistent but during the day it comes and goes. Today I woke up with a headache and I'm very very scared I have a brain tumor. Someone pls pls pls help I'm freaking out I really do not want cancer or anything. Thank you

    umm not to be rude but it sounds like your stressing about a brain tumor or cancer lol which if it was that you would have more symptoms then just a headache. the most likely cause is tension headaches or mirgranes. tensions headches respond well to cold therapy and you can try doing some Sternocleidomastoid muscle excerises to see if that helps.

    could always be blood pressure related aswell even though you are young.

    If you are really not happy you could go back to your doctor and ask for an MRI scan of your brain which will pick up any abnormalities

    Hi, you have had the exact same problem as me, be persistent about the MRI and get reffered to a neurologist. not a paedreatric as they will do nothing. you most probbably have nothing but better safe than sorry. Worrying will make it worst. Have an eye test and get a teeth x-ray as mine is most likely TMJ, dentist going to confirm soon.
