Lump On Back of the Skull

I have a question reguarding something odd on the back of my skull. I seem to have a lump there, I don't know how long it's been there. I think since I was 8 that I can remember maybe longer. I'm almost 20 now. It doesn't give me any pain and it doesnt grow. It's hard just like part of the skull except its about the size of a small marble. Is it normal for some people to have this or should I be concerned? Basically I can lay my head perfectly flat because of this thing. Like I said though, it seems to be part of the skull as it rounded and not just a protrusion in the middle of no where. Just thought i'd ask.

Is your lump at the base of your skull near the neck?

lump skull, knot head, bone head
It's an 'Anatolian Bump,' a genetic indication of possible Melungeon ancestry. You might be related to Elvis Presley.

iT ISN'T CANCER IT'S A- PARASITE, BACTERIA, FUNGI, PROTAZOA ETC
don't settle for cancer because you have lumps on your skull. I have had them for years. Don't suck up to the medical field because they are too stupid to figure it out!

Figure it out yourself, if you can. If not ask for help but don't settle for CANCER BULL!
