In brief: Likely migraine

Sounds like this is pretty scary for you.
Throbbing headache on one side of your head that gets better with lying down in a dark room is often migraine. However, if this is new and isn't going away you might need an examination. I hope that helps!

In brief: No tumor likely

Especially if you feel nausea and/or light sensitivity, this can be migraine.
It's a vascular, not a tension headache or a sinus type. A tumor would not go away at night nor would it be likely to pulsate. Don't be afraid - do see a Dr for exam, eval and Dx and Rx. I hope it goes well. Acupuncture can help too.
