Head MRI ImageMRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is sophisticated and detail examination that used after basic x-ray test cannot find the right diagnosis of head object.

2. Brain Tumor

Tumor can grow in the brain and we call it “Brain Tumor”. It can be dangerous if not operated appropriately such as for malignant type (Cancerous), but if it’s benign (non-cancerous) will be checked further whether it can grow and destroy the other part organs or not. Medical condition symptoms and tumor sign would be tested in Laboratory for detail analysis.

Brain tumor is initially lead by severe headache and an intermittent condition (On and Off). Coughing, straining, and uncomfortable position is the most common of brain tumor symptoms. Dangerous stage would make the intense of pain. The sufferer will be painful to light sight directly.
