I have been having headaches on the right side of my head for two weeks now and the occasional ear ache. Now accompanied by noises while laying down.

Neurologist: I recommend a consultation with a neurologist to evaluate these persistent headaches.

Sinus related: Although everything is possible, the symptoms you experienced are more likely related to your sinus problem and deviated septum -rather than brain tumor. Go to see your md/ ENT to get treated. Get some decongestant, nasal spray, humidifier etc- as they may help. ...Read more
