Not very likely: At all. Especially in a 19 year old.

Very low: You can be describing anything from impacted earwax to a jaw / TMJ problem to a host of other possibilities. If these become more than a minor nuisance, visit with your physician at your next regular appointment or earlier if need be. Brain tumors don't announce themselves as twinges, and the causes of dizziness are many and seldom are tumors. How's the hearing in each ear?
