Probably not tumor: The chances that you have a brain tumor after four months after a negative had scanned are very very low. The headaches and symptoms you're feeling may be simple migraine headaches unrelated to any tumor it is worth your time to see a neurologist to evaluate the headaches if they continue.

Unlikely: It is unlikely that a tumor has developed in 4 mths.There are many causes of headaches like sinus problems, migraines, temporal arteritis , TMJ issues, high blood pressure etc. You need to see your family doc or a neurologist to get evaluated and treated.

Buck up, Jellybelly: It sounds almost like you'd be happier if you did have a tumor you've had MRIs & CTs and they showed no tumors you need to let go of the headache = tumor obsession & take control of your life & your headaches instead of playing the victim & letting them control you go to a doctor & start getting these everyday thangs under control instead of just being scare & going poor, poor, pitiful me.
