You should see a doc: You can start with your family doctor or a general physician. All physicians know how to investigate a lump. This will require physical examination as the first step. Then there may be a need for a test or two and a possible biopsy or excision depending on the doctors impression of its cause.

Head lumps: firstly see your PMD, then if it determined then you can see a general surgeon - it is not necessary to see an ENT

Follow: It may be a tiny lymph node or a cyst. If increasing in size or if signs of infection become evident; follow up with your doctor.
