Thanks for using Healthcaremagic. Benign tumor if it is slowly growing in size can compress the normal brain and can cause headaches, vomiting and seizures. Migraine is not related to the benign tumor. As suggested repeat the scan of the brain and see it is compressing vital areas of the brain. Take care. Bye

Hi well come to HCM.
It is possible if the tumor size has grown bigger.Intially when small there was no pressure
on surrounding brain tissue.After increase in size it has started giving presure on sur-
rounding structure which gives all these.Get done,repeat MRI brain and asses and
compare with previous size.Thanks
