    Depending on how severe and how often the injury happened to the head, people rarely can have headaches over the long term due to this. In your case the injuries are less likely contributing to headaches. Coming to family history of cancers, it would help me to answer better if you could tell me what type of cancers they had. Certain types of cancers like colon, breast or prostate cancers have higher risk of inheritance. If the headaches are due to any masses in the brain, they usually have other symptoms like weaknesses of the arms or legs, difficultly swallowing, vision, speech or imbalance in gait. These are symptoms similar to stroke. Masses in the brain, depending on the size can also cause vomiting due to increased pressure with in the skull due to swelling of the brain. Since you did not mention any of these, this is less likely a cause in your case. The other generalized symptoms which you have mentioned like heart throbbing and anxiety are making me think that it could be a psychological condition. It is better for you to see a physician to get more details about your symptoms and a good physical exam to make sure you do not have any neurological deficits as I mentioned above. To rule in a psychological condition, other life threatening causes have to be excluded and this is the reason why you need to see a physician. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    The little information is not enough to make any diagnosis and suggest any treatment. By the way who made you to get MR scan? He should be able to tell whether your problem is organic or functionla and hwom to consult. My suggestion is to consult Physician (MD General) and get evaluated.
