On an MRI,what does a tumor look like?
I've been plagued with headaches for some time.I always attributed it to several major injuries.I just learned to deal with it.I recently developed an extreme salty taste in my mouth.Doc sent me for brain mri.After I was done,I know the tech isn't allowed to say anything,but I assured him I wouldn't say anything,just tell me IF they found ANYTHING.I really didn't expect a response.He told me "I can't TELL you anything,but I can SHOW you"I'm thinking "Great,Like I know what the hell I'm looking at"Anyway,he showed me.IMMEDIATELY,A large white kind of circular object,about 1/8 size of whole brain,caught my attention.I asked "what am I looking at?"The tech said"look at he left and right"Well,the large white(as CLEARLY opposed to the overall grey,was distinctly on the left.I asked "Is this top?bottom?What?"He replied "That is behind left side of your sinus.When I stated "Well,at least they finally FOUND something,now they can fix it"The tech wouldn't meet my eyes at that point.Told me MY Doc would have the report in a few days.OK,it's 130 in the freaking morning.I KNOW nobody can actually diagnose anything based on what I've said,my question is about the MRI.I don't know anything about reading them.But even to me,this large white thing was obvious without even searching,it is only one side.Is white indicative of a tumor on a brain mri?thank you

Lissacol is right. That technologist should not be working anymore. When I had an ultrasound done, the tech said something to me about the results and my doctor blew a gasket. That tech should have done their job and left the rest to the doctor. I would be giving the doctor this information, because before you know it, this tech will think they can give more information and start diagnosing. They need to be called on their actions.

It sounds like he was trying to prepare you in some way so that when you see the Dr. it isn't such a bad blow. But It isn't necessarily always bad there are many things that are curable and benign and a positive outlook is very important in your recovery, How you accept your situation is a choice and being up beat and optimistic are your best tool for a good outlook.God Bless Take Care Many smiles Keep Positive

White means solid. So it's a solid mass behind your forehead/eye sockets.
I don't know for sure, and it could of course be some kind of error, but it doesn't sound so good.
I would call your doctor first thing in the morning and tell him you're very concerned about your MRI and to get it as fast as he can and call you first thing. Sometimes they can get you moved up to the top of the radiologist's list.

It sounds to me like you have a sinus infection or sinus retention cyst. If you were looking at a T2 weighted image (and how would you know if it was a T1, T2, FLAIR, etc?), white is fluid. On a T1 weighted image, fluid is darker. We find issues with the sinuses fairly often when we do brain MRIs, and they can be just on one side of the sinuses.

Compare what you saw with this:


I also want to say that I think your MRI technologist was an idiot. You should never show a patient their images, because we are not allowed to tell you what we think we are seeing. If this turns out to be a sinus infection/cyst, you will have spent all of this energy on worrying yourself like crazy over a benign, easily treatable/curable condition. It is like showing you your chest x-ray, then not being able to tell you that the large tumor looking area in the left side of your lungs is merely your heart! Best wishes to you, and I hope you get to talk with your referring doctor soon.....
