Thank you for our question, we are sorry that your wife has developed this lump on her head and that she has also been suffering with headaches.
There are many different conditions that cause a lump to appear on the head which we have listed for you below, however these are not commonly accompanied by a headache.
We are very pleased that your wife has been to see the GP, however if you are both still feeling concerned and things are not improving, we would encourage you to go back and see them again. It may be worth clarifying with the GP whether or not they believe the lump is linked with the headaches. Depending on the size of the lump, it’s possible that your wife has been experiencing tension headaches. Regardless of whether the lump and headaches are linked, both should be investigated to your satisfaction.
As with any unusual headaches it’s important to know when they need emergency attention, so if your wife experiences a sudden onset of weakness, unsteady gate or numbness down one side, blurred or double vision then she should seek emergency medical attention immediately. However if the symptoms don’t worsen but still persist then again I would encourage you to re-visit the GP.
We hope that this information has been helpful and that your wife is feeling better very soon.
