Bad odor in left nostril, regular mild headaches, suffer short term memory. Is it brain tumor ?

I have a bad odour in my left nostril and have had this for aprox 3 months. It is most apparent once I have rubbed my nose. I thought it may be blood vessels of sinus etc, but I now seem to have mild headaches regularly. My short term memory isn t as great as it could be but I have a very hectic stressful life at the moment. After checking on mentioned brain tumour hence I am now slightly concerned.
