our 5 yr. old daughter has complained of headaches in the past. but usually they come on when she has to do something she doesnt like, or is mad, or hungry and tired. sometimes she will complain in the car and we think she could get car sickness since my wife does. her headaches have never made her vomit or nauseated. we do not see or notice any neuro problems, and her ped. dr. has checked her often. last nite she complained of a headache and had fever and chills. she is very active and these "headaches" have never stopped her from playing or being her wild self. and these headaches go away as fast at they came. i am sick over this and continue thinking the worst things. my wife is getting mad at me for making her worry too. we also notice she will complain 99% of the time to us, not her sitters or teachers. does this sound like cancer??? when do we say enough is enough and take her for tests??? if someone has a similar situation i would love to hear it!!!

Re: scared

I'm assuming you mean brain cancer. It would be unlikely. Usually brain cancer presents with behavior or emotional changes, impaired judgement, memory loss, impaired sense of smell, paralysis on one side of body, reduced cognitive function, and vision loss. She could just be suffering with migraines. You might want to take her to a neurologist and get a few tests done just in case. A CT scan could image her brain and get rid of your fears. Good luck.
