    Throbbing on one spot of head

    I have been having throbbing on one spot of my head on the left. It's not painful nor do I have sensitivity on my scalp. It happened three months ago and again a couple of times recently. I did have urine retention a year ago and I had an MRI of my head, so I'm not worried about tumours. But should I be worried it may be a blood vessel about to burst in my head? They didn't do contrast so don't know if it would show up on the previous MRI.

    If you are having throbbing in your head, it could be from a number of causes. It is reassuring you had a normal brain MRI. However, if you are having ongoing symptoms, please go back and see your doctor, as they may want to do more tests.
