A 29-year-old female asked:

My two year old toddler has hit his head so many times since he was a baby. he's fallen of chairs and sofa while playing, can it cause brain tumors?

No: We do have a lot of experience with toddlers falling.The most significant association I find is the cut under the chin from hitting some stationary object.There is no association of these common events with brain tumors.
