Hi everyone,
Is it possible for someone at 17 to have a brain tumor? I have found a very big lump on my head and its rather itchy also. I haven't hit my head at all this year so I cannot see why I would have a lump on my head? I also saw the skin doctor late last year but he, at the time, said I was fine. What should I do? Go back and see the skin doctor? Should I make it an urgent appointment or? Thanks.

  • Age is not bar for brain tumor and every lump is not symptom of tumor. Without proper diagnosis, it is impossible to detect a tumor. So for you mental satisfaction, you may go another reputed doctors or hospital for diagnosis your lump.

  • Well said. According to my knowledge there is no9 any age limit for this disease but if i see your condition than don't worry dear. these symptoms are not of brain tumor . I think you should discuss with your doctor and need some overall checkup.
