could it be a tumor

I have been having problems lately that makes me think i might have cancer

lately, I have been very very forgetful, one time I was simply talking to a friend and basically forgot everything, and I'm not talking about the conversation I forgot everything about everything for about 5 minutes and my speech was basically random jargon, it really scared me.

Recently I have been having alot of problems when I talk, stuttering and slurring my words when I never did so before and there is no real history of that in my family.

My vision in one eye is also pretty bad all of a sudden, alot of ghosting

Also I have been getting alot of occular migranes on that same eye causing a blindspot followed by a massive exremely bad headache that words cannot describe, as soon as the blindspot appears I know before it even starts in 30 minutes ima be in a world of pain.

could this be a sign of brain cancer, if it is what do i do.

Re: could it be a tumor

Yes, it could be a sign of brain cancer, but it also could be some other sort of neurological problem, such as mini-strokes. It sounds serious enough that you should see a doctor as soon as possible, but I wouldn't panic. Worrying doesn't accomplish anything, but investigating it and finding out what's wrong is the first step towards fixing it.
