15 y/o male. Hard lump on back of head, doesn't move, feels like bone, feels like dent under "lump" making it feel raised. Doc said lymph node?
Lymph nodes in that area are generally from SCALP sores which when scratched ca become infected! However, the SKULL often has raised areas which are NORMAL!! Sounds like you need a definite answer and this could involve xrays. If it is a lymph node and persists WITHOUT "simple" explanation a biopsy would be indicated!
Hope this helps!
