After a cat scan I was told I have a 2x3x3 growth in my brain

Im a 49 year old male I was given a Cat scan at the E.R for dizziness, I was told I have a 2x3x3 growth surrounded by fluid in the center of my brain bewteen the arteries, that I'd have to have an M.R.I to see if the growth is attached to the artery because the cat scan couldn't see if it was. I get very dizzy like vertigo dizziness now, incredible head aces, I was told the Cat Scan also shows I've lost 2% brain mass loss? I have memory issues now, confusion in a task I'm doing, I have to write my phone number down. Loss of control of my bowls, I forget what I'm doing have trouble completing and putting words together I get irrational and irratated easy I wasn't told if the growth is an aneurysm a cyst tumor on the paper the cat scan technican wrote groth surrounded by fluid needs MRI immediately.

First of all let me just say I am sorry you are going through this. I hope whatever it is, it is easily fixed. What kind of mri are they sending you for? One with contrast?

Did they give you contrast with the CT scan in the ER, or was it just a CT without contrast?
