I have a hard bone like lump about the size of a dime near the left occipital. Have eczema on my scalp and it has been inflamed recently. What is it?

It's a lymph node: Considering that you have eczema on your scalp, it is most likely a lymph node that got stimulated to enlarge. You can tell that it is not a bone by trying to move it under the skin. If it moves, it is not a bone. If your eczema is infected, the lymph node will stay enlarged, I would suggest that you have a doctor take a look. ...Read more

A small bone hard lump on the of my head. About the size of a dime. It is painful to the touch but not otherwise. Is this a tumor? Or is it benign?

It must be quite tense, which probably gives a hard texture.
I am sure your surgeon would be getting a Xray to ensure there is no new Fx through the screw hole.

Good luck. ...Read more
