Can a tension headache last for 3 weeks and be getting worse or could this be something more serious anuerysm or tumor?
Tension headaches: Yes, tension headaches can last for a long time because they result at least in part from extreme tension in the muscles around your scalp.

Migraine Headaches : Migraine headaches are very annoying and incapacitating. Your doctor might have prescribed a migraine drug for you, which, if taken judiciously, should ward off or at least minimize the discomfort.
