Having nose bleeding in the morning, pain at the site of removal of brain tumor. Need MRI?

Hello, I ve been having a left side Nose Bleed for the last 2 months it happens in the morning when I wake up and last about 10 minutes. About 10 years ago I had a brain tumor remove on the left side also now I m having pain in there too. The lights are hurting me. I saw my family doctor he thought it was just a sinus cold he gave me antibiotics. I have finished them but still feel this pain in my head. Do I need to get an MRI?

Thank you for posting your query.

Nose bleeding and headache need to be evaluated. nose bleeding may not be related to past brain tumor or the current headache.

You can consult an ENT doctor for finding out the cause of nose bleeding.

For headache, you can take medications such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets. If the pain does not subside, you can get the MRI brain done.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
