When I touch my eyebrow, there is a sharp pain behind my eye. I only have to barely touch or scratch my eyebrow. Could this be a tumor or something serious?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. These are not suggestive of a tumor or any other serious neurological disease.

The most likely cause could be local tissue inflammation.

You would benefit from analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets. You should get better in a few days.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
