Bumps on head: Two things come mind right off: 1) shingles. If they are little blisters, and your skin feels tingly, go see a doctor right away for anti-viral medicine, which has to be started within 48 hrs of seeing the shingles rash. Or 2) Sebaceous cysts. Blocked oil glands that fill, can get infected, often need to be drained in the office. See a dr if they get worse or seem like something else entirely. ...Read more

Evaluate it: Without seeing it, hard to know what it is. Could be an infection, cyst that is on the verge of rupturing, or traumatic cut or wound. If there is purulent discharge or redness or foul smelling odor, it may be an infected cyst that needs drainage. It could just be a bruise from hitting your head that just needs some ice and time for recovery. ...Read more

Sanitize your comb and hair brush. Wash your hair with a mild soap only.

Inflammation &/or an: Infection. You need an in-person exam by a provider that can lay eyes on it. If it's a hair follicle infection, it's called a furuncle, which, without treatment, can progress to cellulitis &/or abscess. If >1 follicle gets involved, then it's a carbuncle. Talk to your doc about need for drainage, aspiration, culture, empiric antibiotic treatment. If lymphadenitis, use ultrasound & needle biopsy. ...Read more

Hi.: Hi. It sounds like the bump is on the outside of your skull - so don't worry about brain cancer. You may have a cyst. If you are an older person (especially if you don't have a lot of hair) and you have had a lot of sun exposure - it could be a skin cancer. If it is a cyst, they often resolve on their own. If it doesn't, then you can have a dermatologist take a look and make a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

Doctor can check: Lumps and bumps are hard to describe in words. If one has little bumps on the head of his penis, and STD's have been ruled out, they could be "pearly penile papules", which are small, skin-colored papules that usually are located on the edge of the head of the penis (visible when the foreskin is pulled all the way back). Pearly penile papules are considered normal. A doctor can evaluate the lumps. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Without a direct look at it, it's hard to offer a reliable Dx. So, bring the onset, degree, duration, & progress of the little bump over time to Doc or urologist for analysis + inspection + tests such as biopsy as needed only. Clinically, it may be just an inborn harmless lesion such as mole or HPV. Therefore, seek pro-evaluation timely. ...Read more
