See your Doctor: Hard to say for sure. You need to have a physical examination of the problem at the very least. Possibly you weren't aware of the "bump", there could be delayed bleeding. Headaches are common after head trauma. There are meds which can reduce the intensity and frequency of those headaches-ask your doctor. Avoid repeated analgesics like ibu or aspirin. Get it checked out. ...Read more

Lumps in the dumps: What's on the outside of the head (lump) has nothing to do with what goes on inside. Seizures cause headaches.

It is not possible to tell why you have it from your story — it could be from a recent infection, it could be scar tissue ... or a cyst that is compressing the nerve sheath. You need to have a physical exam by your doctor, and then you may need other tests afterwards depending on what she sees. ...Read more
There's a soft lump on my face. A little below my eye but close to my nose. Not firm and disappears when pushed down. Skin issue? Cancer? No pain.
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor, however, from what you described, cancer is not likely.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
