Hi there,

I woke up this morning and the bottom of the right hand side of my head was aching, just above the hairline before the neck. I put my hand to it and there's a lump there which is painful to touch, it also hurts when i move my head. I tried to see if maybe it was a large spot or boil but could see in the mirror as it's underneath hair. It may even be an ingrown hair? I've never heard of tumors or sists being painful?

Please help
Thank you
Jenniflower

It's nothing, they come and go all the time. Just an ingrown hair or a pimple. Should be gone a about a week.
