Really worried if i have brain cancer ?

Hi. I am 17 year old and live in the Uk. For the past few days I have been having a feeling of pressure or blockage at the right side of my head. Above my ear but slightly closer to the front of my head. I havent been having much pain or any serious headaches just the uncomfortable feeling in my head. I have also been feeling sick sometimes but not all times.

Go to the doctor. Insurance is not an issue, since you have gov. sponsored medical care. I know you are terrified to find out what is going on, just in case....but the odds are in your favor. The pain and pressure could be from alot of things, and a brain tumor is one of the least likely culprets. Just go to the Doctor. Before you go, make a list of everything that is bothering you so you don't forget something. Take care.

yes, go to the doctor. a brain scan is the only way to see what is going on. certain brain cancers can grow very quickly, so waiting even a few weeks can mean a major difference in your long-term outcome. i got my first MRI on a friday. my doctor looked for someone to perform surgery that weekend; but no one was willing to work over the weekend. i had it as early as i could, which ended up being the following wednesday.
