I had lump on my head. A 2 or 3 years ago. It grow and got bigger. It bleed and hurt. Had it removed. 3 mths ago find 2 lumps on my head.

What was the biopsy

These lumps on the scalp could be what are called Trichilemmal or Pilar cysts which are the most common cyst of the skin and contain a thick substance consisting of dead skin cells, etc. but could also represent something more serious. You should see a dermatologist for an evaluation. Thanks.

What could be causing painful lumps on the back/right side of my head. They even hurt when I cough.

Painful Head Bumps

Cough
When you cough, you can "stretch" the tight scalp skin, and any such lesions will hurt. Some causes, and there are many more, of such lesions are described here===>http://www.ehow.com/list_6645563_causes-painful-bumps-scalp_.html. Without further description and your medical history, it would be hard to pinpoint the cause. Definitely make an appointment with a dermatologist to undergo evaluation.

See your doctor

You sould see your doctor. This lump needs to be palpated by your doctor and he/she needs to be able to put the rest of your symptoms in perspective.
