Not likely: This is possible but unlikely. Brain tumors can cause a plethora of symptoms, based mostly on their location and size. Having just pain in your temple being the presenting symptom alone would be unusual. Tumors can cause headache, seizures, weakness, cognitive or speech deficits, numbness, and many other problems.

Not likely: Headaches are often a symptom of brain tumors, but there are many other causes that are more common. There are many possibilities, see your doctor for testing to determine what is causing your pain and thus how to treat it.
