Maybe: Only if it is causing you to have seizure activity. Any other suspicious symptoms? Same feeling during the day? Feeling like your out of your body? Re-occurent episodes of de ja vu? Unexplained episodes of nausea or abdominal pain.

Brain or skull?: Likely unrelated if the tumor is on the skull.
