Chances are that it is not a tumor. I understand it is frustrating having a severe pain and not knowing why. This type of presentation is very common. It may be posture related.


If your ear is not in line with your shoulder then your neck muscles have to fight to keep your head on your neck. Because of this the muscles get tight and inflamed and refer pain to your neck and head. You might consider consulting with a chiropractor to get this issue resolved. Good luck!
