Doubt a tumor: Several considerations, as the head shaking can be a sign of heredofamilial tremor or essential tremor, but cerebellar tremors could also be a cause. The unilateral headaches could be due to jaw, dental, or migraine mechanisms. Suggest you have your doctor evaluate you, and provide advice and treatment.

Maybe: Brain tumors are uncommon for people your age. However your involuntary head shakes might represent a kind of seizure, and headaches can be caused by brain tumors among many other things. Most likely you don't have a tumor, but see your doctors for a neurological workup to find out what's actually wrong.
