It is vital that you or your friend, who suspects possibly having a tumor, to notify the parents and make an appointment with a physician studied in testing for such medical issues.

Usually, you can contact your local hosptial and get a referral to a neurologist, who would be able to run tests and find out for sure if your problem is a tumor.
