Headaches could be an indicator that lung cancer has spread from the lungs to the brain. Luckily, not all headaches in people with lung cancer are associated with the spread of cancer to the brain. Sometimes, a lung tumor may press against the “superior vena cava” also known as the large vein that circulates blood throughout the entire upper body and pumps it through the heart. This pressure from this lung cancer tumor can also trigger headaches, so that should be taken into consideration when looking at headaches as a symptom of lung cancer.
