Headache is one of the earliest signs of a brain tumour, especially in elderly people. This kind of headache usually involves the entire head, may be associated with vomiting and may increase early in the mornings. Associated features include seizures, decreased consciousness, and weakness in limbs. A headache should never be ignored and must be investigated properly.
