    Sentence analyse

    ''Doctors may make pictures of your brain
    to see if there is a growth, a tumor, or can-
    cer at an early stage of it.''

    If we are talking about a scan, ''make picture'' is out of grammatical sense, right?

    The whole thing is very poor English.

    As bhaisahab said, it's poorly written from start to finish. Unless you were talking to a child, no-one would refer to a brain scan as "making pictures of your brain"!

    Doctors may perform a brain scan to see if there is a growth or tumour, or any [other] early signs of cancer.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
