Is it possible for eye doctors to diagnose brain tumors? I am having pressure behind my left eye followed by a headache and a severe head cold; however I was just at the eye doctor in February and he said everything looked fine.
yes. have diagnosed one myself. but having pain behind one eye does not mean you have a brain tumor. it is much, much more likely to be something else. like cluster headache or sinus problems or blood pressure problems or many other things. make an appointment with a primary care physician and tell them about your pressure feeling. tumor is possible, but a little unlikely.
