Anatomy Which vessel is involved!

A 70-year-old woman of Scandinavian descent consults a physician because she has been having numerous headaches for the past several months. These headaches began abruptly and increased in severity and duration over a several week period. They are sometimes accompanied by facial pain on the lateral aspect of her forehead. During the period when the headaches first began, she experienced malaise and fever. Physical examination is notable for a tender, thickened blood vessel running cranially along her lateral temple anterior to and above her ear.

The involved blood vessel is most likely which of the following?
A. Facial artery
B. Lingual artery
C. Occipital artery
D. Posterior auricular artery
E. Superficial temporal artery
