Hi.. It is unfortunate that it has happened to him at such a young age. But the exact cause for a tumour to happen is really unknown.. After considerable research they have found that a few major risk factors when exposed to can lead to brain tumours over a period of time.. And a fall that occured once is not one among those major risk factor..
