Could frequent headaches indicate something serious?

I have very frequent headaches normally in the afternoons. Could this be an indication of something serious?

Hello, yes absolutely. Most of the time afternoon headaches are due to tension/stress, sinus fullness/infection, or occipital neuralgia. But you would want serious things ruled out such as a brain mass firstly.
New onset HA should be treated as serious. MRI to r/o main concerns. Treatment is to follow. There are many different types of HAs. Each has a different treatment. I would consult a Neurologist or Pain MD
