Searing headaches
Hi

I am asking this on behalf my my brother who has no access to the web:

He is suffering from searing flashes of headache pains inside his head. These headaches began at or around the same time as a lump or raised area of the skin about 25mm diameter appeared on the left side of his head, above the eye-line but between the ear and eye ( if that makes sense).  I would appreciate any insight offered.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

How old is your brother?

This sounds like a unilateral headache. Differentials will be a migraine headache, a cluster headache, hemicrania continua or paroxysmal hemicrania. These are differentials which may present as severe, short and sharp headaches presenting on one side of the head. The pain may last for a few seconds and may occur repeatedly several times in an hour. Cluster headaches may occur in clusters (as the name implies) and may resolve spontaneously. They may present with nasal discharge and eye redness.

What aggravates your brother's headaches?

What relieves the headaches?

Are there any associated symptoms like visual symptoms and numbness?
