How do brain tumor headaches feel like? Are they different from normal headaches from benign causes? Do brain tumor headaches come & go?

In brief: Progressive headache

Headache is a common ailment;it is mostly caused by stress/muscle tension or migraine.

Internal brain problems such as brain tumors can also be the cause of persistent headache but such headaches will steadily get worse every week. Often the headache is worse in the morning and wakes you up from sleep. Nausea/vomiting will follow soon.
You should see your PCP and seek medical checkup and treatmen
