Big Lump On My Head

The mastoid process is a normal protuberance of the temporal bone (ear bone) behind the ear, but this should be symmetric behind both of your ears. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. Please see doctor to rule out other things. Peace & good health. ...Read more

I have a small movable bump on the right side of my neck. It's behind my jaw and slightly below the bottom of my skull? Lymph node? Cancer?
About a month ago, I noticed a hard lump about the size of my palm on my head. It's right above my hairline on the right side. I'm very concerned.
I hit my head on the Concrete, and I had a bump on the top right side of my head on May 22. I still have a bump on my head at the same spot today,why?
Head bump: The bump probably caused a bit of bleeding deep next to the skull. It can calcify/scar the area. OR, you might have a small foreign body, tiny piece of rock/concrete, that embedded and caused a local inflammatory reaction. If it doesn't bother you (hurt) I would leave it alone for now. It will probably slowly go away. Of course, a surgeon would invite you into an encounter with a scalpel ;) ...Read more
