Growing bump on head

Few years ago I hit my head pretty hard my wife and I notices that I had a little bump or lump on the top of my head honestly I can't say how long it has been there we just noticed it the time I hit my head. We didn't think anything about this until about 2 weeks ago that lump started to grow it is sore to touch redish purple dry and itchy. I am very confused on what to do I do not have alot of money to got to the Doc. maybe somebody can tell me what it could be just to ease my mind. Thank you

If this bump looks like a raised red patched of skin covered with silvery scales, that are dry and itchy, you may have a case of head psoriasis.
New symptoms, like changed size, soreness and itchiness warrants medical attention.

Visit your dermatologist for true evaluation!

Lump on scalp
Several years ago I noticed a small "pea" size bump under my husband's scalp...now it has become so noticible people are starting to question. It is now approx the size of a quarter and pains him at times..it is also starting to change color. Any ideas? He said he doesn't go to the doctors because he doesn't think it is anything....I'm worried.

my sister discovered a lump on her scull and it turned out to be metastasized from kidney cancer. she will die soon. don't leave any lump go to your doctor. what is a few dollars when it could save your life. i wish i could save hers but sadly it is too late
