Never Ignore A Headache

Headaches are a common phenomenon which we all go through at some time or the other in our lives. However, how would you feel if your doctor recommended you to go in for a CT scan or an Imaging test just because you complained of a headache? That would be something intense! Wouldn’t it be?
A recent study has suggested that headaches can prove fatal for you, if ignored. The research has indicated that headache may be one of the major symptoms of brain tumor and should not be ignored. Various tests such as CT Scans and imaging tests can help to determine the presence of the active tumor cells in the brain and therefore, detect the presence of tumor, if any.
In a study which was conducted on 95 patients suffering from Brain tumor, it was found out that headache was one of the first seen symptoms in almost 11 patients. Out of these 11, four patients were suffering from unbearable regular headaches which needed further examination. However, the remaining seven people were suffering from regular headaches which were often mistaken for migraines or for headaches related to light sensitivity. In most of the cases, the headaches were ignored by the patients.
Any delay or the absence of testing in case of patients can prove to be fatal if the tumor is detected at the later stage of the disease. This casual attitude of the patients needs to be changed. It is recommended to not ignore the headache and instead to go in for the testing, rather than opting for self medications. Keep a tab on what is triggering your headache and what is the frequency of the same. Check for the time duration of the headache as well. If your doctor suggests you to go in for a scan, make sure that you make it your number one priority as timely detection and treatment can work wonders for you.
