Faint aches in the back of the head. Last for about 5 seconds each time. It happens quite a lot. Is this a symptom of a brain tumour or something bad?

In brief: I doubt any problems

Any symptoms which are transient, are not considered significant .
So I would say that you should ignore them. The symptoms from brain tumors would be more severe, more persistent and get progressively worse. So you should quit worrying and you will likely get over this sensation very soon.
