See doctor: It could be a tick (in US) or other blood sucking insect, a bruise, or a cyst. Someone should examine it. Not likely to cause a headache, but could be.

Blue black lump could be a kind of skin cancer called melanoma. Not likely, but possible. It could also be a benign (not cancerous) skin disorder. Someone with knowledge should look at it.
