My stepson was diagnosed with Choroid Plexus Papillomas at the age of 6 (he is now almost 13). He had the tumor removed but has been dealing with headache issues off and on since the surgery. I am not too familiar with the "rating scale" that he and his mother refer to with doctors and hospitals when they are talking about his headache pain levels. Is there some sort of "rating scale" that is used with brain tumor patients to see where their headache pain rates? What are the symptoms from each level?

I've always just done the 1-10 standard pain scale

Same here, with the 1-10. Usually 10 being the worst and being no pain.
