There are many causes of headaches and brain tumors are usually not the cause. You should have an evaluation by a doctor to determine the cause and the appropriate treatment.

Recommend seeing a medical neurologist and evaluating the cause of "chronic daily headaches". Most likely cause is migraine, but need to have this diagnosis confirmed. Since you are "worried and scared", be proactive and schedule ASAP.
