My husband occasionally wakes up with his face a little puffy. It doesn’t stay puffy long. No redness or no other symptoms He has no other medical issues. I’m worried. Could it be a brain tumor? He doesn’t want to go see the doctor. He works night time shift. Been working a lot lately. doesn’t sleep much

Age:
Male
Medications: He takes cholestoral med. and ecitalopram

Hello. A puffy face when waking up is probably caused by either not drinking enough water, poor diet (too much salt), too much alcohol. A TSH test may be required to check for Hypothyroidism. I wouldn’t worry about a brain tumor. But I would try to improve the points mentioned above. Regards
