Pain in head, indentation, slow hair growth, cat scan normal, head tissue abnormal

hello I have been having terrible pain in my soft spot in my head. You can even see an indentation in the area. Also my hair started growing very slow in there too. I can t even touch it because it hurts so much. I had either a cat scan or MRI done about 2 years ago and the result was that there was no issue in the inside of my head but the tissue was found abnormal. I m worried that something could be wrong. Some people say that it s stress but i have doubt because as the years goes by the pain/sensitivity increases. Please give your insight on this matter. Thank you. Gerly

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no need to worry, as the CT/MRI scan of brain was normal. This rules out serious conditions such as brain tumor, infections, blood clots, etc.

The most likely cause of your headache could be migraine, where one can have scalp hypersensitivity (increased sensitivity or pain on touching).

Preventive medications such as beta blockers or topiramate would be helpful.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
