HealthTap Prime: Not sure what you mean by "lumps in head". Intracranial hypertension (or pseudotumor cerebri) is usually diagnosed by lumbar puncture (spinal tap) & measuring the opening pressure. It does not cause any skull defect or "lump" as you put it, unless there is some other reason ("non-idiopathic"). In that case, there's usually a history of cancer. Use HTap Prime & TTYD about your symptoms. Good luck.
