Would a CT scan/mri/mra detect tumors or cancer?..I had all these done from a thunderclap orgasmic coital cephalgia, but I always feel dead tired

by the way, yes, CT scan/MRI/MRA could detect a tumor. In the setting of severe headache like yours- they were done to your head to rule out intracranial bleeding, mass, stroke-and I assume they were all normal. Scan of the head only good for the head- can not tell about condition of other part of the body.

In brief: Generally yes

Mri/mra is highly sensitive for detection of brain tumors, but your condition is unlikely to be secondary to a tumor. Ct is a little less sensitive, but faster and cheaper..
.But it also uses radiation.
