In brief: Relax, not tumor!

Headaches are very common, most often due to stress.
Brain tumors are uncommon.The pain on the top of your head is not a symptom of a brain tumor. Perhaps it's related to the position of your head and neck when sleeping. Don't sleep with your head elevated on more than one pillow. Likely your symptoms are temporary. If your headaches persist or increase(unlikely)see your Dr. for a proper diagnosis

In brief: Be examined

It does not sound like a brain tumor.
Check your pillow and your sleeping position to see if you are straining your neck. This can cause pain in the back of your head that spreads to the top. Be examined by your doctor for further advice. All the best.
