I remember seeing this movie in the early 1960's. As I recall, an astronaut was launched into space, the spaceship was lost and he was presumed dead. But he had actually gotten back to earth and had become a "radiation monster".

His head was oversized, spherical in shape and had pock-marks that looked like someone has taken an ice-cream scoop to the head. He killed people just by being near them since he was sending out radiation all the time.

That's about all I recall - aside from getting the bejeebers scared out of me. I think I was about six at the time!

It sounds a lot like "Monster a Go-Go!", released in 1965 and often considered one of the worst scifi films ever made.

Monster a Go-Go!

Monster a Go-Go! 2
