What causes a dent in the skull?

Hi I've had a dent in my skull for a couple of years now. It's sensitive to touch, sometimes it feels bigger. I've been to my doctor X-Rays were done but everything came out ok. I just discovered I might be gluten intolerant. Could this have something to do with my dent?!

The dent in your skull needs to be further investigated for the possible causes-some of them are-infection,vitamin A toxicity,trauma,prolonged pressure on head.

As you have mentioned about the gluten intolerance it would be good if you get it confirmed by an allergy test.

However gluten has nothing to do with the dent in the skull but the signs and symptoms of gluten intolerance and vitamin A toxicity are some what similar.
So,it would be good if you get tested for both.
Hope this helps you
