I ve a bulge in my head due to long back indoor injury(minor), the bulge never settled down and it doesnot even pain as to touch,
but during headaches it the only area under pain.. its on my left side of head, maybe co-incidently my LEFT eye sight has dropped to -3 whereas, right being Normal.
The CT Scan is normal, no abnormality detected
I am worried.
The pains are recurring
Please some one help

  • could be some scar tissue which is difficult to pick up on ct's or xrays... i fractured my skull when i was a kid and one part is slightly dinted and another has a bump which is just scar tissue

  • nup not usually and i would think your scar tissue would be on the outside of the skull just under the scalp so i would not think so but it can cause a fair amount of pain. MRI is better at picking up scar tissue than ct or xray and ultrasound. I have a very sensitive area where my skull was fractured which can cause headaches and alot more pain if i bump that area than if i bump another part of my head
