Headache one of the early symptom of Brain Tumour

According to the latest study published in the journal Neurosurgery, headache could at times be the only symptom of brain tumour, recommending CT Scans and other neuro imaging tests for the people with headaches for early diagnosis of the diseases.

According to the researchers those who ignore the headache are at risk of delaying or missing the diagnosis. Event specialists following recent guidelines that suggest limiting the use of CT Scans and other tests for patients with headaches risk their patients who might have brain tumour. Since there are a lot of patients visits with headache as a common complaint, focusing on the issue is important. Migraine is one of the reasons for the headache.

Migraine and other reasons for headache are diagnosed in the doctor's office, without the need for any special tests. But neurosurgeons, with their experience with the patients having brain tumours can differentiate between types of headaches. Patients with brain tumours may suffer from isolated headaches in the absence of other neurological symptoms and signs. To reach the conclusion, the authors analysed 95 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of brain tumour.

Nearly half the patients showed a combination of symptoms, such as seizures, cognitive and speech dysfunction, or other neurological abnormalities. However, about one-fourth had isolated headaches without any other symptoms.

It was found that about 11 patients had only headache as the symptom of brain tumour. Four of them had new-onset headaches that would have qualified them for neuro imaging under recently proposed guidelines.

Headache one of the early symptom of Brain Tumour

It was found that about 11 patients had only headache as the symptom of brain tumour. Four of them had new-onset headaches that would have qualified them for neuro imaging under recently proposed guidelines. The remaining seven patients had migraine or other types of headache for which imaging may not have been performed under the proposed ‘Choosing Wisely’ guidelines. Following the analysis, the researchers noted that based on the set of recent recommendations that were followed, neuro imaging or scans would have been delayed or never performed in at least three to seven per cent of patients who were diagnosed with brain tumours.

The research has important implications for patient outcomes, as early diagnosis of brain tumours can facilitate early treatment with a wider range of surgical options.
