In brief: Skin lump

Usually possibilities include a cyst, a lymph node, or a lipoma.
However there are many other rarer possibilities. It is prudent to ask your doctor to evaluate the lesion. You should go promptly if the lesion is growing or changing.

In brief: Cyst or lymph node

If you have recently had an infection in the head or neck area, it could cause a swollen lymph node ( which might be tender).
Also, a sebaceous cyst is fairly common in this area. If it does not resolve, it should be checked by your primary care doctor.
