Brain tumor??

I'm 18 years old an I'm hella scared because I've been having weird head symtoms.but I had a CT scan without contrast, a MRI without contrast, and a MRI with contrast and all test came back good. I still don't have satisfaction for  some reason. Of those test were good can I stop being nervous. Thank you very much

You basically had three separate test so yes you can stop being worried your probably a hypochondriac just like me.When ever something isn't right my mind just takes off lol just relax and if you wanna be safe get some blood work done.

If you have had all those scans, you are pretty safe in knowing you don't have a brain lesion.

Yourstruly is not really a hypochrondriac - he/she has a pituitary lesion.

A CT scan and MRI are pretty much the tests that will find a tumor- if you've had 3 scans that have been normal I would think everything is okay. The only other scan available is a PET scan which most doctors won't consider unless there is an abnormality with the CT or the MRI

a radiologist is just as important as a machine an mri is done on. if you have had all of those done at ther same facility it is possible you still have a brain scan, but unlikely. if you take my case for example, i went to a well respected imaging facility and all the radiologists there said i had no tumor, howeverr i didnt trust them, since  i have a history of one, and took my films elsewhere, and my tumor is still there.

are headache your only symptom?
