If you feel you have a brain tumor and have already had a negative test (MRI) within the year, how long should you wait before you have another test done? How long does it take for a brain tumor to grow and what is the difference between with contrast and without contrast?
I don't know for sure. I know if you did have one, it would be VERY small. So I would tell you to go get checked. And lots of tumors are completly benign. I know someone who had one removed and it was nothing. And if it has been a year and there is something there then it will be small and managable. I'll keep you in my thoughts. Life can be so scary.
MOst likley it's nothing.
