Have headaches and pain. Have a lump in face. Took Xray. Is this likely a type of bone cancer?

Hi, we have a woman at our village here in Kahunda, Tanzania. She has a large lump between her eyes above her nose. She says it is painful and that she gets headaches. It is about the size of a large grape. They took her to a clinic in Mwanza and they did an xray. The nurse says the xray shows a hole in her skull. Is this likely a type of bone cancer?

This is difficult to say at this moment. X-ray should be examined. There are different pattern of X-ray leading to different diagnosis. You should inform the history in more detail like the onset, progression, duration, shape, consistency of that lump. In case of any suspicion tissue diagnosis may be necessary . Follow your doctor's advise.
