Brief Answer: May be because of the car accident Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. Meningioma is a slowgrowing benign tumor and is found in many healthy individuals when CT scan is done for some other reason. It is unlikely to cause sudden onset speech problems or other symptoms. May be these are due to trauma of the accident. It may be too subtle to be picked up by CT. A MRI may be able to pick it up. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further followup queries, if any.
