Headaches are a normal part of life for most teenagers, but they enter another realm when pain and pressure increase to unbearable levels, even exhibiting signs of a brain tumor. The disorder at the root of these headaches is called pseudotumor cerebri, or “fake brain tumor,” and is characterized by chronically increased pressure in the head in the absence of a tumor. It’s the focus area for a new clinic at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the first clinic in the country dedicated to treating pseudotumor in children.
