Early yes..possible: While most headaches are due to things other than brain tumors, early stages of brain tumors may causes variable onset headaches due to swelling that may be variable. Once such a tumor enlarges enough, the resultant headaches are often persistent and chronic without much relief. If the headaches are relieved with tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen tumor as a cause is unlikely.
