I have lumps on my head. It was from hairline to behind ear but now is from hairline to tip of eyebrow on my temple. Help, no doctor knows what it is.

Sebaceous cysts

Head
Hard to tell without seeing them. May be a sebaceous cyst. Best to see a dermatologist who can figure this out rather quickly.

I had a white head spot behind my ear I didnt pop it but now its a hard lump under the skin is this owt serios ive two more of these lumps on my pubic?

Hiradinitis

Acne
The way you describe sounds like a lesion with pus formation it is more common in armpits. But any area where the hair is curly can cause this issue. Need to use hot pack to soften the induration (lumps) and can use antibiotic like neosporin if the area gets bigger and painful need to see your doctor.

How do cancereous lumps behind ear look like?

Various forms

Dermatology
Basal cell or squamous cell skin cancers can be very ulcerative and bleed often. Sometimes, basal cell lesions can be very nodular. This is something that should be seen by a dermatologist or ENT doctor. Many other things can cause bumps behind the ears.

Could the lumps and bulges behind my ear be the cause of my severe headaches?

Unlikely

behind the ear may be lymph nodes or the mastoid process which is a bony structure. Headaches may be related to migraine or TMJ. If you have pain in the temple or with chewing, you may have myofacial pain related to TMJ. Softer food warm compresses and motrin may help.

I woke up to two lumps on my head one behind the ear that leads to a bigger one ?

Lymph nodes

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
These are probably enlarged lymph nodes. If you have a little cold or something, then this is common. If they don't go down or away in a week or so though, or get worse, I would see your doctor

The lumps could be simple scar tissue, granulation tissue, or excessive scar tissue called a keloid. Before it is treated, you need to know for certain what she has.

Hi have lumps behind my ear they are not sore I also have been getting headaches the same side and some pain in my jaw?

See a doctor

Head-jaw
This needs to be evaluated by detailed history and physical exam. The lumps behind the ear are disturbing, but because unable to feel them and define them more accurately they must be subjected to professional evaluation. Good luck and hope you improve quickly.

Extremely dry flaky scalp all the time. Skin in crispy lumps. Sometimes spreads to ears. What is it. Tried every shampoo under the sun?

Crispy Lumps??

Scalp
(Sounds like a breakfast cereal!) Not sure what you are describing...could be eczema, psoriasis or just dry skin. I suggest that you see a dermatologist.
