I am suffering from headache for one years, I met a neurologist, he said that I have migraine, he suggested me brain ct scan with contrast. In brain ct scan report everything thing is normal. I have a doubt for brain tumor. Can I go for mri test? Or ct scan is enough for detection of brain tumor? please suggest me.

You are over concerned or worried like a hypochondriac. You need to calm your mind and migraine cannot be diagnosed with any tests and it is diagnosed from the history and medicines are useful. If there is tumour could be seen in ct scan a mri is not needed.
