Thank you for posting your query.

Tumor of the meninges- meningioma- could cause headaches. If it is possible to send the MRI/CT report of the brain, it would help me advise you better.

It is useful to note that meningioma is a benign tumor and there is no risk of fast growth in the tumor size. Also, surgery may not be required if the size of tumor is small.

For now, you could take analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets to relieve the headaches.
