Headaches are of the most common symptom patients experience in terms of pain throughout their lives. Most often, it is not dangerous can be a simple “headache.” Many times they are caused by extremely common conditions such as migraine and tension headache.
Nonetheless, they are often the first and most common side of other diseases which can be more dangerous and life threatening. This may include brain tumors, bleeds in the brain, strokes, seizures, vascular problems, autoimmune problems, metastatic cancers, and other conditions.
When people develop a new headache, it is imperative to evaluate the cause of the pain and rule out certain conditions. This is especially the case when the headache comes on suddenly, is associated with other neurological symptoms, there is no history of headache or the new headache is different, or if the pain is severe.
