You know why didn't his doctor detect a tumor when he would go for his annual checkups or did he ever go and see his doctor?

See here. Remember he died in the 60s before there was a lot of medical updates. HE did go to the dr for headaches and his attitude was noticed but they never knew he had a brain tumor while he was alive.

Right, we know why he killed his mother and wife, because he wanted the spare them the bad thing he was going to do, but we won't ever know why he wanted to do that in the first place. It seemed to me he had a good life, he was married and had friends. He was in school. How bad was his gambling problem? Could that have also been a symptom of his tumor and I also knew he liked to write a lot.

His father was said to be abusive. Whitman enlisted in the armed forces partly to get away from his home life. His father had beaten him before. Later on his school career was ended because he couldn't keep good enough grades. He also got some mentalities from his father which caused him to be abusive to his wife which he loathed. He def had his own hardships

Well, I hope his father is rotting in hell too. Why didn't Charles report the abuse to the police?
