Headache is constant ache or pressure around the head, temples or back of the head and neck.
Headaches are quite common, usually treated with simple painkillers. Taking lots of water and having rest may relieve you of the pain. However, headache may be a symptom of an underlying brain or nerve condition.
If your headache persists or occurs again and again over short period of time, it is advisable to consult a neurology specialist or visit a neurosciences clinic for check-up and treatment. Severe headaches are the most common symptoms of brain tumors.
