Abstract
The brain tumors arise inside the cranial cavity from brain tissue and surrounding meninges. The
tumors are responsible for increase mortality in general population building a pressure in the health care system
of many countries. This study is performed to enlighten the prevalence of brain tumor with headache as their
presenting symptom. This is a retrospective study of patients with brain tumour. The data is collected from the
patientís case file of Hospital University Sains Malaysia, Kelantan, Malaysia available from 2013 to 2018. A
total of 138 patients were selected for the study. Out of them 77 patients with brain tumour headache were
included in the study. The age group was considered from 5th year of life to 65 years and above. The analysis is
performed by SPSS version 23. The tumours are categorized as intra-axial and extra-axial. Under intra-axial
tumour, 10 patients of glioblastoma and metastatic brain tumour encountered headache which is highest among
intra-axial tumours. Meningiomas are the top most extra-axial tumour precipitated headache. About 25 patients
of this tumour are detected encountering headache. The headache associated with tumour temporal lobe
accounts 16 patients. The frontal lobe tumour (14 patients) is second commonest producing headache. The
Kruskal Wallis H test shows a significant difference between brain tumour, gender and location. A correct
diagnosis is very important for treatment of brain tumor. One of the tools for accurate treatment is their
presenting symptoms.
