Thanks for your query.

The lumps that you mention appear to be visible to you and such lumps will be out of the skull.The lumps out side the skull are mainly due to vascular malformations in the scalp veins.

The Migraine like headache usually is seen due to blood vessel disease inside the skull and there would be no relation with the above lumps.

I suggest you to get examined and rule out one of the above.

Do consult a general physician and get back to me after discussing about the examination findings with him.We shall then have specific idea about the problem you having.

Anticipating your response.

Thanks for writing back.

No both above conditions I mentioned can be easily treated, based on the underlying pathology.

Wish you good health.
