I was wondering when you should get help if you feel you have a brain tumor? What symptoms are the major ones for possibly having a brain tumor? I'm tired, sometimes dizzy, ringing ears, headaches every once in a while, nautious every once in a while, and sometimes feel like my vision is acting up, like its unreal? I don't konw if this is anxiety (which I have) or something to get looked at?

There are other symptoms listed such as:
Hearing problems such as ringing or buzzing sounds or Hearing loss,
