I have a small lump in my forehead, it's hard and feels like it's on a nerve because when I press on it and try to move it sometimes, I get a shooting pain through my head. Headaches occur sometimes too?

My husband has a very intense headache on the back of his head on the left side he's had it for 3 days now what could it be? Should we worry?

My husband has a very intense headache on the back of his head on the left side he's had it for 3 days now what could it be? Should we worry?

If he has not seen a doctor as of yet he should do so immediately.
Best of luck. ...Read more
