My husband has a large soft mass above his hairline.  It is sore.  He wont go to the doc.  What concerns me it is near his earlobe?

Need more info: This could be benign or a malignancy. Hard to say without an exam & more info. Please use your feminine persuasion as his wife to convince him to see a dermatologist very soon. Most likely if I were to guess is that it is a benign sebaceous cyst that will not go away on its own. If I am correct it is a simple bit of surgery to remove. Don't play Russian roulette.
