I see a doctor he check on me me but he say 99.9 percent I don’t have but he ask for ct scan I’m worried would I have brain cancer?

Doctor: Depression associated with memory loss and personality change are mostly psychiatric disorders not associated with any p hysical lesion in brain. Rarely a space occupying lesion in temporal region of brain can cause these condition. There are many space occupying lesion, out of which cancer is one but a rarest one. Your doctor has advised for CT scan in order to rule out any organic lesion of the cause and then treat with medications as per the reports. Don’t worry as cancers are rare and it could be a psychiatric disorder alone. Followup with your doctor after the test done for further advise.
