In brief: Very uncommon

A headache coupled with confusion, dizziness, memory loss, slurred speech, loss of balance, weakness on one side of the body, seizures or blurred or double vision could signal a stroke or brain tumor, so always demand prompt medical action in those circumstances.
Isolated headache is rarely caused by brain tumors.

In brief: Possible but unlikel

Most headaches are not caused by brain tumors.
If you have atypical headaches or the worst headache of your life, you should see a medical professional.
