possible cyst.: More likely than not, you have a "sebaceus" cyst on your scalp. These are benign growths that stay and can enlarge over time unless they are removed. Once removed, they are always biopsied and the clinical diagnosis is then confirmed. The best method of removing them is an "excision" which is commonly performed by dermatologists as an outpatient/in-office procedure.
