Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Lumps in scalp are mostly benign and soft tissue masses like atheroma and lipoma. It could be sebaceous cyst and needs to be examined and if bothering can easily be excised. Let your local surgeon have a look and proceed accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
