Current medical status: i have had migrained over the last few years. The last two week I have had a constant headache, come and goes as far as intesitiy. Along with that the last 2-3 days I am loosing loss of word, confusion, tingling arms and face. I went to the er- they did a ct scan and he said the right iac is a significantly larger that than the other, suggesting I have a small right sided tumor causing widening - he set me up to see a neurologist and have an MRI done.
Current medical treatment: ct should right iac is significantly larger than left. have MRI set up and an appt with neosurgeon

Any brain issue that causes such an appearance on a CT-scan is very likely to be a tumor. It could be a neurinoma of the acoustic nerve. Another question is if the tumor is benign or malignant.

You probably should consult a neurosurgeon about this problem.
