well, everyone has fluid in the brain. it is called CSF.
now, the issue is when there is too little or too much

it has nothing to do with cancer or tumor, although they are a cause of excessive CSF production (about 10%)

fluid is around your brain, sometimes too much or too little. do you have a shunt? sometimes you have to get revision surgery
