Headache, tumor on blood vessels. What should i do?

Hi. I ve been having severe headaches for two weeks now. Then for the past few days I ve had pain in my right arm . Last night I was rubbing my arm down and found a lump in my elbow crease. Went to the ER and they said it was a tumor laying on my blood vessels which is causing the headaches. My aunt is telling me to go to another hospital to get a second opinion. I can t get rid if the headaches. And the lump is freaking me out.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. there is a communication probelm. A lump in elbow creasem even if it is atumor, pressing on the blood vessel cannot cause an headache. And moreover how come the doctor diagnosed the lump as tumor with investigations? Its seems ridiculous. You should certainly seek help from some other doctor. Most probably the lump could be a lipoma which you need not bother about. But still get a second opinion.
Either the hospital doctor did not know what he was talking or else
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
