Frequent Headaches

I am getting severe headache frequently. Almost twice weekly. I observed that some times it happens when I take my lunch late or when I think too much. I normally don't take medication since I believe they may have side effects. Is it normal to have headache? Is it OK if I tolerate it without medication? My aunt died recently with brain tumour. One of her symptoms is headache. So, do I also need to suspect and go for any Scan? If yes, which one is better, CT or MRI?

Hello, there are several types of headache tension headache, vascular headaches, migraine headache, sinus headaches, headache due to other medical conditions or lesion in brain. MRI is better to see brain tissue, don't worry first consult a neurologist, some headache can simply be excluded by simple history taking.
