brain cancer.

Not all headaches lead to brain cancer, but some can. It is one of the fastest growing cancers around. If they are accompanied by seizures, wakes you up at night or in the morning, loss of vision- see a doctor. If there’s a tumor present in your brain, the blood vessels can swell due to carbon dioxide intake and it squeezes on the tumor, and the whole brain puts pressure on your skull thereby causing the headache. Risk factors: over 50, if you’ve had 3 or more CAT scans to your neck and head area, and heavy cell phone use (debatable but limit your exposure). Solutions to stave off brain cancer? Use an earpiece with your cell phone, keep a two-week headache diary (logging example here), and eliminate cooked ham, processed pork & fried bacon.
