So i'm suffering from Headaches that won't go away by pain relivers like Paracetamol , Dizziness and black out's when standing up , Eyes pain and sensitivity to light , Short term memory loss , difficulties in talking , Loss of concentration , Hearing problems and Tinnitus , Balancing problems, and changes in my mood and personality like GAD , MDD {Was talking Zoloft and Lexapro}.......

5 months ago i went to neurotologist and he ordered a CT Scan , Came out clear and said that everything is ok .....

My question is , Could a CT Scan detect small tumors ? Like MRI ?

What should i do now ?

Ps: I'm type 1 diabetic , Taking insulin and Metformin and my last A1c is 6.3 which is great , I'm diabetic since march this year...

And most of the symptoms i mentioned above are 1.5 years old

Thanks in advance :)

A CT SCAN MAY DETECT SMALL TUMORS,,,HOWEVER THEY CAN NOT DETECT VERY SMALL ONES THAT ARE LIKE TINY,,, YOU SHOULD TAKE MEDICATIONS AND SEE A DIFFERENT DOCTOR, TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

I was having the same problems u are and my ct showed a small tumor and my mri showed a bigger one. I had surgery to remove part of my tumor then the thurday before christmas i was diagnosed with stage four brain cancer. Im 28 yrs old with six girls ages 14 months to 11. Im terrified of whats going to happen but im starting chemo and radiation and whatever else i can do to beat this. U should get and mri done to make sure theres nothing wrong, u dont want to wait too long like i did.
