Hello Ayu, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Your complaint can indeed be a symptom of a brain tumor, but if you see a history of head injuries that you have experienced several times, the complaint can also be caused by other conditions such as brain bruising, migraines, minimal bleeding in the brain or the protective membrane of the brain.
Brain tumors alone cannot be stated without examination results which clearly state that a tumor is found in the brain, and the relationship of these conditions with a history of head injury remains unclear or not.
To ascertain which condition has caused your complaint to date, you should check the complaint further with a neurologist for evaluation. Your doctor may suggest that you undergo additional tests to determine the cause, such as a head X-ray, head CT scan, brain MRI, or other tests according to your doctor's judgment based on your condition. After that, then you can determine what therapy is recommended for you to live.
In the meantime, you are still advised to only consume paracetamol at the dosage according to the package if a complaint of headache is felt until there are other medicines recommended by the doctor who treats you. It is not advisable to take any medication, including herbal medicines, without clear advice from your doctor because it may not be needed by your condition or even worsen complaints.
You are also advised to avoid future head injuries in any part of the head, if they occur again, immediately check the condition of your head injury to the hospital emergency room after the injury occurs to get proper treatment.
I hope this helps.
