Normal: . As long as he's not having other symptoms such as weight loss, night sweats or fevers, I would give it a bit more. Tell yourself if not smaller by Labor day you'll have it checked out further. Causes can be viral (like mono), ANY scalp irritation such as bug bites, sores, dandruff, infected hair follicles...
