How to diagnose Brain Tumor?
As part of the diagnosis, a doctor will measure nervous system functions, physical and mental alertness, and examine the brain functions from reflexes to judgment, smell and taste. If responses are not normal, a brain scan will be ordered, or the patient will be referred to a neurologist or neurosurgical oncologist for more tests. A scan is the first step to identify if a brain tumor is present, and to locate exactly where it is growing.
