I noticed a lump on the back of my head. It's hard, immovable but it doesn't really hurt unless I push hard on it. I heard it may be a part of the skull (bone) but I'm not 100% sure. Any help is appreciated.
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination, however, it does not appear to be a serious issue and you may wait to consult your doctor next time you see her/him.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
