Lipoma: Sounds like they may be lipomas which are benign encapsulated accumulations of fat. Many people have them and they do not require any intervention unless they are so large they are cosmetically unappealing or pressing on a nerve and causing pain. An examination by your provider can confirm this is the case. Very rarely is any additional testing needed to make this diagnosis. ...Read more

Hard immovable lump where top of neck and base of skull meet along the hairline (occipital lymph node?); itchy scalp; swollen lymph nodes on neck
Don't worry: It's common at age 16 to have enlarged lymph nodes- you have an active immune system. The lymph nodes at the base of your skull in back are occipital lymph nodes. They get big from viral infections, particularly mononucleosis. If these wax and wane in size, don't worry. If they stay big, see a doctor. Rarely 16-year-olds get lymphoma. I don't think your itchy scalp is related; dandruff? ...Read more

I found a mass the size of a thumbprint that's firm/bony &very tender to the touch. It's on the left side ear level. Below it, sore node on back neck?
Exam needed: I recommend that you have a physician examine this mass. Even if it appears to be an enlarged lymph node it should be reexamined in a week or two to assure that it has receded in size and if it hasn't, further evaluation by biopsy may be advised in order to rule out malignancy. Reexamination is also important to ensure that other masses have not appeared. ...Read more
