Dr. Mina Lobos, from the Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute, revealed that brain cancer can appear in the form of persistent headaches that require some form of pain reliever.

“It is very important to be mindful of which symptoms require more urgent evaluation, as early detection and intervention can have a significant impact on later outcomes, such as survival,” Lobos told Parade.

She explained: “The case of persistent headaches, especially new severe headaches with or without nausea, vomiting, or blurry vision, should be discussed with the specialist doctor immediately, instead of relying on headache treatments that do not require a prescription.”

This is especially true for patients who do not have a history of chronic headaches or migraines.

“A person with no history of headaches should be evaluated for a possible brain tumor,” Dr. Jose Carrillo, a neurologist and neuro-oncologist, told Parade.

Pain and nausea may occur because the tumor increases pressure in the skull, especially as it grows larger.

According to the Moffitt Cancer Center in Florida, cancer-related nausea may last for at least a week, feel worse in the morning or when lying down, and intensify after suddenly changing position.

In addition, a review published in the journal Cephalalgia indicated that headache is the most common symptom of brain cancer.

There are more than 125 types of brain cancer, the most common of which are gliomas, which form from glial cells in the brain.
