Possibly: Yes, brain tumors can cause headaches! The good thing is that “statistically speaking”, they are pretty low down on the list as the vast majority of headaches, probably over 99%, are due to other reasons. However, if it’s been going on for awhile and are bothering you... you should have an imaging study (MRI or CT scan of head).. to exclude this possibility!... good luck, and hope you find relief
