Weird headaches - should I be worried about tumor/aneurysm?
I've been having a strange headache for almost a week now - it's like a mild constant pain but only at a specific point in my head (in the upper back right side of my head). Sometimes it almost goes away, and sometimes it seems stronger. I'm 26 years old and I've never had common headaches before; even when I did, they were like the usual tension headaches, on the forehead area or all head in general. I currently don't have any other symptoms, sometimes I get my right ear a bit clogged when I walk/talk but it doesn't happen often. I've done some googling and now I can't stop thinking about all the serious things it could be, like tumor or aneurysm.. Because of the current situation in my country I cannot make a test for that anytime soon unless it's an emergency.. So maybe someone could give me any advice if it's something I should be too worried about? Is it normal to have pain only at one point?

One can certainly have pain at only one point. It is highly unlikely to be anything serious, but it is impossible to be sure without being examined by an expert.
