I have headache from few months in half head on left side. 24 yr old female?

Localized headache: Headaches located on one side can be migraines, cluster headaches or things more ominous. I would suggest starting a headache diary and making an appt to see your doc right away to figure this headache out and get it under control. You need to figure out what kind of headache it is and then treat the cause. http://www.headaches.org/for_professionals/headache_diary. ...Read more

Doubt tumor: head dyscomfort symptoms are like snow flakes. Rarely do 2 people describe the same type of symptoms based on their perception. You wont' find anything in the literature about a ping pong sensation in your head. After 23 hears I have learned that unusual sensations like this that haven't been described in the literature mean nothing. Ping pong sensation can point to middle ear issue. ...Read more

What are you asking?: Not sure what your question is. I can tell you that a widely shared opinion in medicine is there is a down side to diagnostic (over) testing: the "incidental find." Rarely, it's the "zebra" that saves a person's life, but most of the time, it's clinically irrelevant or insignificant. In your case, your radiologist ruled out "red flags," so rest easy. If concerned, ask PCP about 1-2y follow-up MRI ...Read more

Evaluation needed: But you already knew that. I would recommend seeing your regular doctor, getting an xray of your neck. You will likely also need a few more tests including an MRI and emg/ncs. This will help understand whether you have a herniated disc, and pinched nerve. Good luck! ...Read more

Please seek help : It is difficult to comment without having look at this swelling. If you haven't injured yourself, this swelling could mean an abscess or a cyst. Please visit your GP for an examination and further investigation as it is abnormal to have such large knots appearing suddenly. ...Read more
