Headache, lump on forehead, prominent veins. Had VP shunt. History of choroid plexus papilloma

My son has a history of a Choroid plexus papilloma and Hyrocephalus and epilepsy , he has been getting massive headaches and lump on his forehead the veins on his head are also very prominant. He had an MRI last week and it looks ok (as ok as it can with all that) so his neurosurgeon has no idea what is going on. He has a VP shunt it had surgery 8 weeks ago to change the valve so the surgeon is sure its not that. He has lost so much strength, co ordination, memory and just generally looks terrible he is always complaining of headaches and wanting to go to the hospital but the surgeon has no idea what is going on.
