    Her diagnoses definitely could be causing the symptoms. I've seen cases where tumors were a direct cause of the headaches but the location of the tumor and osteoma may have something to do with it as well. I wasn't able to view brain CT and probably wouldn't know enough by looking at them anyhow. You can always check with the radiologist. I know not many are very approachable but I used to work with a great one that always wanted to teach me. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
