Likely migraine: There are different types of headache- migraine and tension headaches are the most common ones. Migraine headaches usually are one sided headaches- can be preceeded with aura, hallucination etc- also can be associated with photosensitivity etc. Although brain tumor also can give headache- but it is unlikely in your case. Having said that- go to see your md and have yourself checked.

Maybe: One sided headaches can be caused by many things. I would see your primary care physician who can help to sort out the likely diagnoses and how to proceed.
