Headaches can be benign or life threatening but, with careful attention to the details described in this article, the correct diagnosis and treatment can be arrived at in many cases. Modern imaging techniques have taken the guesswork out of many conditions but a high index of suspicion and attention to red flags helps avoid potential adverse outcomes in headache encounters in a high proportion of cases.
