Not clear on all: If i understand, you had a headache lasting for one month, and have undergone two expensive tests, MRI and eeg. Do not quite get why brain tumor is a consideration here, unless your doctor found abnormalities, such as papilledema on exam leading to concern. But generically, very doubtful you have tumor, hydrocephalus, etc., and more likely migraine or tension headache.
