: I have recently begun to feel pressure continuously on the right side of my head behind and around the ear. I also have been feeling tingling "pins and needles" in my feet only (heel and toes) that comes and goes all day - almost only when I am sitting down. I also have been getting short but frequent streaks of pain in the head - again mostly right side - throughout the day. I feel pressure behind my right eye as well at times. I do feel a little nausea once in a while. I also feel like there is something constantly in my right ear with slight constant pressure. It is starting to make me nervous. I am getting an MRI done Thursday. What have I to fear wiht these symptoms. All have occurred rather recently. From what I am reading I am a prime candidate for this cancer.
This is just a few words of encouragement. I am sure you are anxious about the scan but
it's a good thing to seek medical attention. It is probably nothing, but if it does turn out to be something you
have caught it and can seek treatment. Survival rate is soooooo dramatically increased by early
Good luck and God bless.
