Could I possibly have a tumor?

Hi, I am a 31 year old female in fairly good heath.  For a while now I've been experiencing very SHARP shooting pain on the left side of my head behind my ear.  Recently the pain has gotten worse and it seems to be happening more often.  I'm really worried about it but I have no insurance and can't really afford to go see any type of specialist right now.  I would greatly appreciate a professional opinion.  Thank you so much for your help.

hi,your symptoms are not suggestive of tumor but this could be neuralgia(nerve pain) for which you need evaluation.Usually in cases ot tumor,focal neurological deficit is observed i.e some kind of limb weakness etc.

Please consult doctor and for exact diagnosis.

bye and take care!
