For a few days now, I have been experiencing pain in the back middle part of my head with a soft spot in the area its coming from. It 's getting more frequent as time goes on...What could this be. I have not had any injurys to my head at all. Please Help.
Pain in the back portion of head with a soft spot could be due to a burst capillary due to high blood pressure. An abscess or localized collection of pus is another possibility. It can also be an aneurysm in one of the scalp arteries. You need to consult a doctor to find the cause. Clinical examination, BP monitoring and dopplar studies may be required. Take care!
