Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
The brief description of yours indicates that she is having migraine. You need to consult a good neurologist. No need to worry, she is very unlikely to have a brain tumour.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Erm, hi. Probably a stupid question and I ve only brought it up because I was thinking back to Casualty and Nick Jordan and his brain tumor. But I ve began to notice that I slur my words up like by saying a different letter at the beginning of a word or not being able to pronounce the word at all. I have problems with balance, like I can t balance to save my live. I also get bad headaches and blurry vision some times. I m I just seeing thing that I know are related with a brain tumor and worrying aimlessly of could I be on to something?

Helo, my 3 year olf daughter was diagnosed with aggressive non-germinoma Yolk-sac brain tumour at a late stage in the supracellar area. she had surgery then chemo and was growing normally. It was only after the radiation (only to tumour bed) that she stopped growing. I do not what to do? doctors have not given us any growth hormones. She also is aking cortisol hormone as the gland responsible for it does not seem to be working properly, we have been trying to lower the dose but were not able to stop it. Ps: she lost sight in both eyes since tumour was pressing on optic nerves. Can you advise us please?

My niece s son has been waking at 5:30am every morning for the last month, vomiting. He is a pre-teen in middle school. He has stopped eating because he doesn t want to vomit anymore, and is losing weight. His doctor has not found a cause for this. His grandfather, my younger brother, died of a brain tumor, a glioma. Is it possible for the grandson to have one also? My daughter had one removed several years ago, also a benign glioma. She was told that they run in families.
