Is My Headache Caused by a Brain Tumor?
by Josh A Harding
With secondary headaches the head pain is just a symptom of the primary health
disorder. By looking at a few factors it is usually possible to determine if your head
pain is nothing to be worried about or a serious health condition.

If you suffer with three or more headaches a week, this is not a natural thing. If you
are having three or more headaches a week you should see a medical doctor. You
should also seek medical help if you are taking painkillers almost every day or if the
pain is continually getting more intense, it's time to talk with a doctor about your
problem.

The sudden onset of a headache after a fall or other head injury could signify a major
problem and immediate medical assistance is required. If a headache appears
suddenly and is severe in intensity, you should again seek immediate medical
attention. There are many reasons to seek immediate help from a doctor and the
most common reasons are if you have a headache that is accompanied by a fever,
seizures, double vision, stiff neck, loss of mental focus or confusion, or rash.
Additionally, if you are over 50 years of age and start experiencing new headache
pain that you never had before, it's time to seek help.

Migraine headaches are usually experienced on one side of the head, but will switch
sides from one headache to the next. The pain can be on one side for a headache or
two and then be on the other side the next time or two. This is normal. However, if
the pain is continually on the same side it could be caused by a brain tumor.

Brain tumors will normally be associated with other symptoms as well. They tend to
cause a loss of sensation or function on one side of the body as the tumor pushes
against tissues on one side of the brain. When a tumor causes an increased amount
of pressure on the brain it can cause other symptoms such as loss of balance, vision
problems in one eye, or other one-sided symptoms.

If you ever experience symptoms that you believe may be caused by a brain tumor
it's important to seek medical help immediately. The quicker a tumor is discovered
the better your chances of successful treatment.

Almost everyone experiences a
headache now and then. In most
cases these intermittent headaches
will not be a sign of a more serious
health condition. However, in some
instances the headache will only be a
symptom of some underlying disease
or condition.

There are two types of headaches,
primary and secondary. Primary
headaches are simply head pain.
Secondary headaches are caused
when some other health condition
such as a disease, infection, brain
tumor, or other factor is present.
