Fatty tumor. Headaches connected to it? What is the knot on head?

I am a 27 year old female who was diagnosed with a tumor in 2008 but the doctor felt it was only a fatty tumor and I would be fine. Over the past several months I have been having all day every day headachs that never seem to completely go away. As time progressed I am finding myself tripping over my own feet or should I say my own left foot regularly. I also become very light headed and nauseous sometimes to the point where I do black out. Lastly I have noticed a rather large knot on the left back side of my head just a few days ago. What could all this mean?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Fatty tumor commonly refers to lipoma. I believe what your doctor diagnosed is lipoma.

Lipoma is a benign tumour. Malignant transformation is a rare occurrence here. So I do not think what you are currently experiencing is not related to this tumor.

Chronic daily headaches are associated with tension and migraine. One can also have dizziness, nausea and reduced consciousness with it. Perhaps what you have is primarily just be a headache (migraine or tension) and not a tumour. I suggest you to consult a neurologist for detailed evaluation.

Presuming it was only a lipoma, I can assure that you do not have a brain tumor.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good health
