I can sure relate to your worries. Mine wasn't a brain tumor, it was MS. I had a brain MRI and once I saw the results (The MRI tech felt so bad for me he let me see my brain) my symptoms went away. My symptoms were dizziness, tingling, etc. I don't know why I didn't focus on a brain tumor, I was just so positive it was MS. Anyway, within 5 minutes of the scan, all of my "symptoms" disappeared.

I think the positive thing here is that you KNOW you are a hypochondriac. So many of us fail to admit this. So I see 2 routes:

Get the brain MRI and have 100% proof that you are tumor free (And ACCEPT this proof) or

Don't get the scan and see if you are satified with the back results.

Like you, every symptom I read about or heard about, I took on.

I have been in therapy once a week now for a year and so far my hypochondria has been in remission. It is usually an indicator of depression. Are you in therapy?
