My husband (32) got out of the Marine Corps in December 2007. He started having really bad headaches that he described to the Dr. as being worse than a migraine. the did the CT Scan and discovered that he had Chiari Malformation Type 1. So April 25th 2008 he had the surgery done. Yesterday we were watching a movie and he complained of another bad headache. I asked him where at and he showed me. That is when I noticed that he had a bump on his head. there was no redness to it or no scratches around it but I asked him if he hit his head. He said No. Today the bump isn't as big, but he said that it is still sensitive. He refuses to go to the Emergency Room. I don't know what to do or what this could be. I am scared that it may be something serious and him refusing to go to the ER will make things worse.
