Question for those who had sinus ct scan.
« on: May 10, 2014, 06:39:32 PM »
I had one done Thursday cause been having sinus and allergy symptoms but google told me I had a brain tumor. If you have been in my shoes and had ct scan of sinuses done, did your dr tell you from ct scan you didn't have a tumor? She showed me what I think was top of head. Was a circle and said they would show. This scan was without contrast.

Yes. The CT scan told the doctor that I did not have any tumors. Mine was without contrast too and all of my symptoms manifested from anxiety. My doctor assured me that brain tumors are EXTREMELY rare and you would be having so many other issues. If your doctor didn't see any tumors, you do not have any tumors.

I actually just had one about a month ago. My Dr did not do it thinking I had Amy brain tumors at all (of course I thought I had one). It came back completely clear. I have major sinus blockage and allergies so that's what my symptoms are from. The Dr told me herself that a tumor would show up, even if it was up to your forehead etc.

i had a CT scan of my sinuses two years ago due to a bunch of scary symptoms (dizziness, headaches, head and face pain, you name it). after the scan the doctor immediately told me there were no tumors in my sinuses or cranium, and that my symptoms were caused solely by sinusitis and sent me on my way. i have chronic sinus problems that make me fear brain tumors so every time i do get a test done that shows i DON'T have a tumor i'm completely knocked off my feet with surprise. just another part of being a hypochondriac. :spineyes:

Oh yes. I got them the time I made that post. The scan of my sinuses showed chronic sinus infection and top of head was clean. She said tumor would have showed if one was there.
