No tumor likely: Especially if you feel nausea and/or light sensitivity, this can be migraine. It's a vascular, not a tension headache or a sinus type. A tumor would not go away at night nor would it be likely to pulsate. Don't be afraid - do see a Dr for exam, eval and Dx and Rx. I hope it goes well. Acupuncture can help too.
