A 31-year-old male asked:

My husband has bad tooth ache, still has wisdom teeth in/ worse headaches. Believes its tumor in his brain. Any ideas? He's 25, no dental insurance.

Wisdom Teeth: Your husband needs to see a dentist. It's unlikely to be a brain tumor. More likely, his jaw pain and headaches are caused by his wisdom teeth. Having them removed by an oral surgeon will probably eliminate his pain. If not, he should see a neurologist. Even without insurance, a dental visit to determine the problem should be affordable, and is necessary in this case. Good luck!
