Golf ball size lump on head

User Profile
I have a bump on the back of my head about the size of a golf ball. I have had this bump for over a year without any other symptoms. I am a 25 year old male, 5\\\'11\\", and 350lbs. I rarely get sick and other then being overweight haven\\\'t had any other health issues. What could this bump be?

Thanks for using this forum.....

Bump on the back may be a deformity of the bone and may be a normal thing only...Its best to consult a surgeon to examine the bump and advice on further treatment...
