Lump On Back of My Head (Page 2)


August 27th, 2009
About a couple of months ago I started to notice weird body twitches. I could be sitting still but my leg would kick on its own, as if something had caused my reflexes to go haywire. It does that at least a couple times a day now, and sometimes my finger or my arm will twitch too. About a month later I started to feel like I was falling forward even when I was sitting still. It seriously felt like my body was trying to pull myself off the chair and on the floor. It was very strange, but I hear this might be a symptom of vertigo. Now I have a lump on the back of my head on the right side (noticed a couple of days ago). It doesn't hurt more than any abnormal bump would when I press on it, and it definitely doesn't ache on its own. Has anyone had the same symptoms, and if so have you gone to the doctor for a diagnosis? I know I should just go to play it safe, but my health insurance is non-existent and I don't have the money, so unless it is an emergency I'm trying to wait until I find a job. Thanks for any help you might have.

The same kind of bump
I have a similar bump in the same place on the left side of my head, and later two tinier bumps tat feel like scabs developed above it. At first i thought it was just a knot from hitting my head on something, until it started to hurt worse, and give me migranes. I also became concerned when the smaller ones showed up. I'm taking Advil at the moment, and that helps with the headaches. Also, when I tilt my head towards the right, it feels like something is pulling the spot, but not too much. Once I tilted it too quick and too far, ad it hurt a lot for a second, like i had hit my head on something. I'd like to kow more about it befor i see an actual doctor, as it's only been there for less than a week. I've had lymph node swelling before, too, but none that hurt this much.

neck lump with head "bite or sore"
have you heard anything? I woke up with a lump on the left side of my neck, then noticed a bite with swelling an inch or so up, on the scalp. I scraped the head off....bbut the lump didn't have a head. The lump is hard and has a definite rock or circular feel to it.

Why do these sores appear near the site of lumps, or vice versa? I seem to not bbe the only one who has noticed the lump, then the development of a nite area..

I am 13 and had a small lump on my scalp and I showed my mom and she took the tweezers to it and picked at it. This may sound gross but a whole bunch of pus and a little black seed came out. It is now gone and I have no more pain! But now I have a lump on my back w/ a black thing in it. What are these? Surely they can't be warts. You don't get those on your head or back do?

Dizzy and Lump on Head
I am a 29 year old woman who has had dizziness and imbalance(vertigo) symptoms for the past few weeks. I noticed a bump on the right bottom side of my head about an inch up from my hair line and I went to get an MRI to see if it was a tumor and everything came out ok. The bump doesn't hurt when I leave it alone, however I've been having numb fingers on right side and sometimes my eyes twitter without me wanting it to and before I go to sleep other muscles seem to twitter as well. When I do press or massage this bump on my head it feels a little tight and sore and relieves my symptoms temporarily. I had a really bad "panic" attack 3 weeks ago and am wondering if this could be the source? I was wrestling around with my husband and remember something happening to my neck/head- but can't remember for sure. having the feeling of being imbalanced at times even when I am still and some times I get a headache...if anyone knows what's going on, please let me know. I have made an apt to see a doctor about the bump and symptoms, after the holiday week.
Thanks!

Just found a bump!!
I just felt a bump in the back of my head on the right side. I took a vitamin about 20-25 mins ago, so I thought it could be related, but I've been taking this vitamin with no type of response like this before. It's been about another 20 mins, and now the area feels tight, with the tightness feeling as if it's wrapping around to my forehead as well, but still only on the right side (which consequently feels like a very slight headache). When I raise my eyebrows, I can feel the tightness in my forehead. I haven't been bitten by anything. I am fighting a sore throat currently, but that's it. I also had my scalp scratched to remove dandruff tonight, but again, that's it (and I only include that in the interest of full disclosure). What could this be?

Lump
I have the same thing, lump (hard, feel like bone) on my head, in the front, I saw a surgeon yesterday, she said just a cyst, but I told her I know two ladies have bump on their heads, now find out, they got cancer. The other one, I don'tknow what kind of cancer, but the other one got MALENOMA, stages 4, still can treated. I told my dr. that, she said to know for sure if my lump has cancer or not she'll do a surgery and get the lump send to pathology to find out. I don't know what to do now, mine is not hurt or anything, I don't know when it there.

Lump on my son's head (lower left back side)
Hi everyone. I hope someone can help me with this. I just got home from work today and my four year old son showed me a lump on the lower left back side of his head. It is about an inch above his hairline. The lump is not moving and is about 3/4 of a pistachio nut. When I pressed the lump, he complains of the pain. But it does not bother him if it is not pressed. According to my son, he did not bump his head to anything. But he has a fever two days ago and is still suffering from flu. I am not sure if it is a lymph node. I hope someone can enlighten me with this. Thanks.

I noticed a small lump on the back of my head, on the occipital. I have been really stressed and was having panic problems before this occurred. This lump feels like a part of a marble under the skin attached to the bone. when I first discoved it, I did not feel pain, but after pressing on it, it sorta hurt, so I left it alone for about 2 weeks. Its still there and it's concerning me. like some of you, I also been feeling dizzy and sometimes see strange flashes and things on the corner of my eyes. I also had the twitching thing to. I found out when im thinking about it, I get more dizzy, so I realize that some of the symptoms may be psychological do to this strange bump. I also have no insurance and worried about this. I also wake up in the morning with severe anxiety and tremors. when I was on the interstate today, my body felt like it was still and that the earth was coming at me, instead of me driving. As if I was in some video game where it was rigged to give you a false sense of perception. As if you are not actually moving, but the video game your in is. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS COULD BE?.. btw. after 2 weeks, I dont think it got any bigger.. maybe a little, but this could be my imagination.. also, it dosent hurt.

Lump on back of head left side
Today I discovered the same thing - a lump on the left side of the back of my head just above my hairline (closer to my ear). It is very tender to touch and has me wondering what the heck it is. My husband and I visited with friends last night and had some cocktails. I asked my husband if I fell and hit my head because it really hurts. He said not that he knew of. I can''t imagine what it would be. I''m 31, workout regularly and puzzled by this. I did fall and hit the back of my head a year ago, same left side. (went to emergency room) nothing major/serious determined, but still have a small knot there that I'm sure will probably never go away. Is there anyway this new lump is related to first knot - due to minor head trauma?

A lump like everyone else.
This is to "5050" or anyone who can give me clue to what''s wrong with me. I mean feel a little better reading some of the post and there''s high chance that one of them is answer, but I''m still worried about it. Anyways, like everyone else I have a LUMP on my head. It is located on my left side, kind of between the low to mid part of my head. It came out of no where I mean about 8 to 10 hrs. before this post it wasn''t there. I have common problems like everyone else, I''m kind-of light headed, dizzy,and have mild headaches. As I type this, I can feel a little pain in my neck.I been having headaches due to not having my glasses (they''re broke), but that''s not what I''m worried about. I want to know why am I dizzy and what the cause of this lump.

Lump on my head
I have had a headache for 3 weeks, only last week did I notice a bump on the lower left side of my head, noticed another one closer to the centre of my head 3 days ago. My shoulders are tense and the headaches makes me tired and sleepy. I went to the doctor who prescribed an anti-flammatory? Is that normal? I read up on it as I am skeptical about taking it. It''s for pain (which is good because I have an annoying headache) but that''s it! I''m thinking of getting a second opinion, I don''t like taking tablets.
