A while ago i discovered a small pea sized hard lump on the top centre of my head, i have not had this checked out. On Tuesday (20/05/08) i came back from my holiday abroad, it was a 2 hour flight and ever since i have been getting a pressure headache which comes and goes all day and does not go when i take paracetamol, it is in the same area on the right hand side of my head, and now (today) i have started to get small stabbing pain all over my body which feel like pin pricks these happen at irregular intervals, i am now starting to feel quite tired and irritable. I now feel very concerned about this situation, and would like your opinion on the matter, thankyou.

Current medical status: Head pressure pain.


Given your symptoms (headache, pricking pain all over the body, tiredness, irritability…) it doesn’t seem likely to me that you have a brain tumor. You might have a tension headache provoked by anxiety. You can visit your primary health provider to get a physical examination and standard blood analyses. If the headache continues you can also consult a neurologist.
