CT scan to detect brain tumors

Would a CT scan, w/o contrast, detect brain tumors?  I have had consistent headaches/headpain, fatigue, intermittent arm tingling for the last 3 months.  No history of headaches.  CT, w/o contrast, was clean.  My neuro has not ordered a MRI yet.  Just wondering if the CT would have detected anything serious (tumor).  Thank you for any responses.

Hi,
A CT scan without contrast can detect brain tumours. You may not have a brain tumour. There may be other causes of headache, fatigue and arm tingling. They could be Multiple sclerosis, Diabetes, Viral infections and many others. Please go for an MRI of the brain to find out if the cause is neurological. Please consult your neurologist for the same.  Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
