982458 tn?1390907908 Has anyone else felt a sore squishy spot on top of their head? My daughter is post-op 5 years and in consult for a probable re-do now that symptoms have returned. We can't figure out what or why she sometimes develops fluid build up under the scalp up on the crown of he head. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
Avatar f tn I have a small (1/3in wide) hard lump on the left side of the crown of my head. I was told it was probably a calcium build up by my doctor but she never examined it. I still have the lump six months later and it feels like it is getting bigger (I can't see it in the mirror where it's located), I am also getting more frequent headaches. It is under the scalp, I can move the skin a little, no hair loss and the lump itself does not move as if it's attached to the skull.
1498292 tn?1289162172 ve found them all over, like in different places on my head. their usually on the lower back part of my head, but just today i found one on top of my head ( this one is really sore!!) i can't stand them so i pick them off. they hurt when i pick at them and they sometimes bleed. they vary in size, some are small while others i've found are huge. i've read that it may be psoriasis but im not sure. does anyone have any idea on what they could be?
1723983 tn?1310118377 Im 25 and I always have headaches but my CT also showed nothing... I always have this constant pressure in the top of my head and I also have an Indent on the top of my head... from time to time it gets sore but not to much.. Ive asked my dr and he said that the pressure could be caused from my Constant Anxiety and worry all the time.. I wouldnt worry to much if the Ct scan come back normal.. But just in case you should ask your Dr to do an MRI...
Avatar f tn I hav had lumps on the back of my head, one towards the right side of my head on the top and the other on the right very bottem since ,i dont know when tht started i found one when i was itching my scalp and the other one i found rubbing the top part of my neck close to my head , but anyways last night all of a sudden i get this weird, tight feeling pinch on the back of my head and the pain kinda tingled down to my fingers, in a way. -its very hard to explain...
Avatar f tn I have a weird sore sensation over the top of my head (if you think where a hairband would like- kind of center middle of head & to the sides). When i sniff its sore, which is often at the moment as i have an horrendous cold. but before i had the cold it was sore when i sniffed. Also sometimes the scalp around there feels sensitive to touch & burns too. Would appreciate your help? Could this be sinus or does this suggest something else?
Avatar f tn These sores can be caused by viral, bacterial or fungal infections. Acne and clogged hair shafts can cause scalp sores, too. Cysts on the scalp are another cause of scalp sores. In folliculitis there is inflammation of one or several hair follicles on the skin causing red, bumpy and pimple-like lumps.Tinea capitis causes round, red, scaly bumps on the scalp's surface.
Avatar f tn Just this evening I felt this soreness on my head, I started touching my head and felt that it was localized at the very top crown part of my scalp - whenever I touch my hair or lightly touch that area it is incredibly painful and sore. A friend looked at that area and there is a bright red dot - the size of a grain of rice. The entire area surrounding the dot is incredibly sore - as though someone smacked me in the head with a hammer.
667923 tn?1421462724 Does anyone else out there have a lot of WHITE MATTER on the top of your MRI's? I noticed that it doesn't seem to be normal and because I had a head injury there back in '95. I hit the roof of a Car, when someone run over something in the road and caused my head to hit full force on the roof. I had a headache in about 10 minutes and cancelled my plans, for which I was excited about. Was going to the casino and at that time was fun..which now, I could care less to go.
455242 tn?1206477307 Would sensation of fullness within the head and the inflammation and swelling that come with sinusitis may refer pain to other areas of the head. As you stated cause that kind of sore-ness on top of the head? with a red spot sensitive to the touch? The swealing bump did go down, but its still red and sore. thank-you, enya...
Avatar f tn Today i have experienced in the left top side of my head almost where a hairband would sit, pains. Not all the time every once in a while. The pains are not horrendously painful but are a little painful. My scalp around that are also feels quite sore & sensitive. Do you have any ideas what this could be? I have no medical problems other than what my doctor thinks is TMJ...i grit my teeth constantly. Are these typical of ice pick headaches?
Avatar f tn For awhile now I have had a sore spot in the top of my head. I don't wear pony tails or braids because anything that pulls on my scalp gives me a headache. My scalp doesn't have sores and the area doesn't appear to be red, but my hair has thinned in the sore area. It isn't sore to touch it just constantly feels tender. I do suffer from allergies to dust, pollen, and cat dandruff. I often have sinus pressure around my temples and forehead.
535822 tn?1443976780 Well I found the reason for my hives I was allergic to Buuny ears (Opuntia Microdasys ) but has anyone got an idea why my head ,scalp is sore and itchy ,last few days extremly so, any ideas welcom, I have started using a completly 'free 'shampoo.
Avatar m tn Over the last few years my hair has continued to gradually thin all over, however the MOST noticeable areas are in the front of my scalp and directly on the top of my head. I still have hair there. Saw the hairstylist tonight and she said my hair was noticeably thinner on top however there were no bald patches. Just that you could see that it was thinning more noticeably in the front. Honestly, if it werent for the fact that I look in the mirror every day, I would swear I was already bald.
Avatar n tn Hi there, my partner (a male) had been complaining of a sore head in a particular spot, and just recently I've discovered he has now got a small bald patch where he's been complaining it had been sore. I was just wondering if anyone knew if it was something to worry about ? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I've been having same thing sort of, scalp sensitivity on top right area about 2-3 in diameter, feels like someone is constantly pulling out my hair by the roots, while what feels like inner ear pain that gets worse when I swallow hard, right above the mastoid process so guessing it's inner ear. I'm on 100mg Neoral and 365mg Myfortic as immunosuppressants as I'm > 10 yrs post liver transplant.100mg, levothyroxine, 5mg ambien, and some supplements but nothing new recently.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone is able to help me. The last 2/3 days i have had bad burning headaches/scalp which has left my scalp feeling tender & sore. However now when i sniff the top of my head in the center (kind of where a hairband would sit) it feel sore & burny.. is this sinusitis?? I do feel congested on & off & have had a small runny nose along with eye pain (they feel like there is lots of pressure in them).
Avatar n tn The suboccipital lymph node is located at the junction between the back of the head and neck. It drains the scalp and head. This normally swells if there is a localized infection in the scalp or head. It sounds like you have either a scalp issue and/or upper respiratory respiratory infection (cough, sore throat). It sounds like you maybe experiencing drainage issues because of the scratchy sore throat issue.
Avatar n tn Yesterday the top of my head was very sore. There is a little swelling and it is very painful to touch. Anyone have a idea? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Lump on scalp</a>.
Avatar n tn Something that is happening almost everyday is a a feeling of pins and needles on the top of my head that are are almost tight and painful and othertimes just feel like bugs crawling under the skin, if that makes any sense. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this or knows what it might be? It is also starting to happen in my face/cheek area. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I've been trying to figure out why my scalp is so sore and very tender I don't have a headache. the back of my head is not as sore as the top, front & sides it is so tender to the touchI would say the very center is the worse. I have not hit my head I've even stop perming my hair. also on my arms I sometimes feel lumps. could these be related? Help me please!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn My wife (64 yrs) has a localized area of intense pain in her scalp located about 2 1/2 inches from back from top center of head on the right side. It is about one 1 1/2 inches right of center line at 11 o'clock back from TDC. The area of the pain is about the size of a silver dollar. It is extremely sensitive to the slightest touch which aggravates the general pain. The scalp skin is clear and normal. She has had this condition for about a week.
Avatar n tn For a year or two now I've had two (2) sore spots on the top of my head, right behind the top, about an inch apart. If I push on them it is too sore to stand, so obviously I don't do that unless I'm testing it. Then if I have a headache and I swallow, I can feel the headache in those two spots. If I hold my head, push on my head with both my hands while I swallow, I don't feel the pain as much. It is strange, and not getting any better.
Avatar n tn bruise-like pain on the top of my skull. I asked my husband to take a good look on the top of my head and try to see anything strange, any sort of mark, spot, etc. He did not notice anything different. This pain does not bother me, unless I touch that particular point. I started to notice this since 2 months ago. Any ideas about what this could possibly be? Thanks a lot.
