Headache with 2 bumps 1 on top 1 on bottom back

Best friend developed 2 small bumps on his head with constant headache at times with migraine severity about 2 weeks ago. No OTC meds help at all. They are tender to touch. He has not bumped or hit his head on anything no trauma to his head at all....

Where are the bumps - front of his head, side, back, neck?

Has he seen a doctor? He really, really needs to. Bumps can be caused by many things, some very serious, some not at all, but please try to get him into a doctor. Any time you have new symptoms and severe pain, it indicates something is wrong.

How is your friend doing?  I think a doctor is in order.  When you say bumps, these are where?  Top of head, base of skull?  Where?  They are muscular in nature?  Sometimes we can get a muscle knot that hurts and a massage therapist can do wonders. That would be more if it is by the top of neck, up the bottom of skull. This can definitely give a headache.  But something else that comes to mind is tumors.  Hope not, but he should get checked.  I do want to say that I have various bumps on my head.  I just do.  Lumpy. But I don't really think about it or realize it unless I have a headache and I'm rubbing my own skull.  The skull in general has spots where muscles attach and in general all of that can get tight and give us a headache.  Your friend could try putting ice on the bumps.  But again, best thing is to see his doctor.
