Should i relax?

I went to the doctors a week ago about my headaches and i told them my complete concern about a brain tumor. They checked me by doing a physical and neuro exam 2 times and said i checked fine and confidently said that i DONT have a brain tumor. She said its due to anxiety..would they have caught it if it was a brain tumor after i expressed my worries? Or should i push for more testing? Or should i just relax? Im 18 and scared

Re: Should i relax?

Are you having any other symptoms other than headaches? If not your doctor probably isn't going to jump straight to brain tumor. Usually brain tumors bring other signs like vision problems, limb weakness, speech problems, etc. But if you are really REALLY concerned and it would bring you peace of mind to get an MRI to be sure then you should push for one.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
