Headaches, sensitive towards light, eyebrow drooping over eye, had sunburn. Brain tumor?

Could I have a brain tumor?
I've been having constant headaches on the right frontal region of my head. Sometimes it gets really bad to where I lock myself in the closet in the dark and cover my ears, but sometimes I just try to ignore it. Never the less, its pretty much a constant thing. I also have sensitivity to light. If I look at a blinking light for just a second it hurts bad for the rest of the day. Sun and artificial lights make it hurt as well. I haven't really been concerned until this morning when I woke up and looked up at someone I noticed my right eye brow drooping over my eye. When I try to raise my eye brows only the left one moves. I know its not a stroke since its been several hours. I got pretty sun burnt 4 days ago and thought that might have something to do with the facial paralysis maybe? but it hasn't been like this until today. I did some research online and all these things seem to lead to a brain tumor. I'm just a bit worried now. Any advice? YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for your query. Photophobia, headache are usually seen with migraine. Don't think about brain tumor unless as you don't have vomiting. But if your still worried about that, then you can go for CT brain. As per my knowledge you might be suffering from migraine, i suggest you to consult ENT and ophthalmologist to rule out other causes of headache. If they suggest CT brain they you can go ahead.
Thank you
