The general notion is that headache is one of the signs of brain cancer. While this is not entirely wrong, it is not also entirely correct as most times we end up instilling fear in people who always suffer fron headaches by telling them they could be suffering from brain cancer. Reason for this assertion is that, very few out of the constant headaches actually indicate brain cancer.

But it doesn't rule out the possibility of headache being a sign of brain cancer, so in this article, we are going to have a look at the headaches that indicate a person could be having brain related cancer.
