I am 55 and have severe pain on multiple random spots on my skull. I have had multiple CT and an MRI with no dx. The pain is localized, to a one inch diameter region of my head and a lump will form after a few days that feels like it is on my skull. Due to these small bumps, the shape of my skull seems to be changing. Any thoughts or ideas?
