Some ideas: This may be an osteoma, a little hematoma / bruise bump that healed with a lot of calcification, or something else. If it's not growing, not painful, and not ulcerating, leave it alone; show your physician next visit.

A 35-year-old female asked:
Do I have to be concern about a lump that I have under my scalp? Because, it's hurts. But is very hard, like a bone.

See a doctor : I recommend you seeing a primary care doctor first for evaluation. If the skin lesion causes pain, it needs to be checked out.
