I have a hard pea sized lump on the back right side of my head/skull. It just showed up a couple of days ago. It seems to be connected to the back of my skull by my ear. It does not move at all. And hurts to touch it. I have not been sick or feverish. I am going to go to the doctor but I am scared and would like to know what it could be.
Lump on the back of head can be due to various reasons as sebaceous cyst,infection,boney spur etc.It requires a proper examination of the lump size,growth,consistency,associated symptoms if any to comment on it.
Consider visiting a Physician for evaluation of the lump and if required investigations as MRI scan which will help in diagnosis and then start the treatment accordingly.
