Headaches in Children

A brain lesion like a tumour is often a concern when a child complains of headache. But this is infrequent and doctors investigate for one when we notice certain associated factors like
*headache worsening on waking or awakening a child
*abnormal signs on examination

Generally paediatricians do not go for expensive imaging techniques like a CT scan or MRI for headache even at the request of parents. With a good history and examination your paediatrician will be able to categorise and prescribe suitably for the child’s headache.
