Cyst?: A dermatologist to see this lesion because it is so atypical to have a lesion of some size suddenly on the head of young person without preceding trauma or other occurrences. Was there a bite? Was there minor trauma which could be a organizing hematoma? See your dermatologist a soon as possible!
