Headache, blurred vision and trouble swallowing could be signs of a brain tumor but those symptoms can also be signs of many other disorders that are more common than a brain tumor. Headache is the most common symptom that can be found in many disorders and conditions starting from simple tiredness to a brain tumor. The possibility of a headache being caused by a brain tumor is very small. Blurred vision can be due to many eye disorders so you can check that with an ophthalmologist. Trouble swallowing can be due to a throat infection which is more common than a brain tumor.
