Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thanks for writing in to us. There are two conditions which need to be evaluated in your daughter. The frontal region contains air filled areas termed the frontal sinus. Very often there can be mild infection and collection in the sinuses. This can present as frontal headache. The other possibility is that of a low grade trauma to the head sustained during soccer practice. This can manifest as a mild form of head injury which might have gone unnoticed. The above are possibilities and after clinical evaluation a different condition may also be found. It is important that your daughter gets clinically examined and her condition gets confirmed. Imaging investigations might be needed after clinical examination. Hope I have answered your query. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
