    Practically the only case is fatal insomnia, an extremely rare prion disease, where a very specific part of the brain (the part that controls your sleep) develops lesions.  Other than that super rare case, if insomnia is a symptom of your disease, it is just one of many other symptoms and is often a direct result of the other symptoms (such as pain), stress or medications.

    Practically never.  Lesions always cause noticeable damage like speech impediments and slurring,  as well as inability to focus, understand native language,  etc.

    Brain tumors aren't necessarily bad.

    Most insomnia is caused by ingesting caffeine and staying up all night on social media.
