Tumor not likely: You are not likely to have brain tumor, based on the symptoms you described. However, you should see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Headache workup : Headaches are common and usually aren't due to a brain tumor. The workup for headaches includes assessment for dietary factors such as caffeine or chocolate intake. A visit to a neurologist can help assess for options for medical treatment. A head ct or MRI can exclude serious concerns like a brain tumor. If the headaches have a surgical source, then you can see a neurosurgeon.
