Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question, and for finding EmpowHER. If you are currently under the care of a medical professional for this brain tumor, you may want to contact them and ask them if it's a good idea.
When you go to a tanning bed, you are exposing yourself to UV radiation, which has been known to possibly lead to skin cancer. Knowing you already have a tumor, you may be better off with a sunless tanning product, or just forego the tan altogether.
Here is more information from The Skin Cancer Foundation to help you advocate for your health better: TSCF.org: The Dangers of Tanning
