Abstract“Do I have a tumor?” This is a question in every person’s mind when first confronted with a new-onset headache, a question that causes considerable anxiety among patients, leading them to seek medical evaluation. This publication reviews the current literature with respect to the epidemiology, pathophysiology presentation, and treatment of headaches in association with intracranial neoplasm. 
Headache and Brain Tumor.
TLDR
A careful clinical assessment for red flags should be undertaken when considering further work-up with neuroimaging to exclude a serious underlying condition. Expand
Update on headache and brain tumors
TLDR
It becomes critical to seek some specific factors associated with the presence of an intracranial mass (the so-called “red flags”) that can guide the physician to establish an accurate diagnosis. Expand
Headache as Complication of Cancer
TLDR
The classic brain tumor headache, typically progressive, worse in the morning and aggravated by Valsalva-like maneuvers, is an uncommon occurrence in clinical practice, suggesting that there may be a shared pathophysiology between the primary headaches and the brain tumor headaches. Expand
Investigation of patients presenting with headache
TLDR
Headache is classified into primary and secondary headache disorders, which include tension-type headache, migraine and cluster headache (a trigeminal autonomic cephalgia). Expand
Headache in the elderly.
TLDR
Management of headache in elderly populations can be challenging due to the presence of multiple medical comorbidities, polypharmacy, and differences in drug metabolism and clearance. Expand
Factores clínicos asociados con masa cerebral de novo en pacientes que ingresan con cefalea al departamento de urgencias
TLDR
It was found that the variables mentioned above are signs of predictive alarm in the presence of secondary headache to brain neoplasms and are of great importance in the primary evaluation of any patient who complains of headache in service emergency as they can guide the physician for decision making.

Association of migraines with brain tumors: a nationwide population-based study
TLDR
This is the first report demonstrating the occurrence of brain tumors to be associated with a prior migraine history, for both men and women, in a population-based study. Expand
Headache, migraine and risk of brain tumors in women: prospective cohort study
TLDR
Results of this large, prospective cohort study in women do not provide evidence that headache in general or migraine in particular are associated with the occurrence of brain tumors, and should reassure patients with headache that brain tumor is not a long-term consequence of headache. Expand
Histomorphological spectrum and who grading of glioma in paediatric population
TLDR
Astrocytoma is the most common histological subtype among all glioma, but according to WHO grading and histological type Ependymoma Grade II (30%) is themost common subtype encountered in this study which differed from other reference studies. Expand
Interventions to reduce the time to diagnosis of brain tumours.
TLDR
There is no evidence from good quality studies on the best strategies to reduce the time to diagnosis of brain tumours, despite the prioritisation of research on early diagnosis by the James Lind Alliance in 2015. Expand
