Mild pain on left side of temple, stiff neck. Serious symptoms?

Hi, For last few weeks I m feeling a sensation with very mild pain on left side of my head around temple. The position of this sensation/pain keeps on changing but one place I can feel is more constant than not. It comes and goes.My neck is stiff for last few months.Not sure if it s really serious specially related to tumor?

Dear mister.
It seems to be some kind of neuralgia. Usually trigemnial or facial neuralgy can cause such pain. It is not yet known the reason of it but there seems to be som etrigger factor which provocate pain.
Trauma, wind, cold or warm water are the most common triggers.
Next thing to think about is migraine which can be localized at only one side of head,including neck.
Neck stiffness can also be caused by nerve compression. You should do cervical spine RTG to rule this out. IF typical analgesia didnt help then consult with your Gp about takong steroid injections.
Wish you good health.
