At the beginning of January, I noticed that right above my right temple there was a very hard like bump underneath my skin. I was in a pretty bad car accident way back in November, so I thought maybe I had broken a bone up there or something. I went and got an x-ray, however the result shown were that there were no bone abnormalities or calcium build up. I am 20 years old and am extremely worried that it may be cancerous tumour. I've noticed that I get small tension headaches, where as I never used to. Also, for as long as I can remember I have always had really horrible sinus headaches, and quite frequently. Does anyone have any similar experiences or any ideas as to what it may be?Sad

Lump near temple area
I have the same "lump" on my left temple area. I had it xrayed and it came back normal but it is not going away. I did bump it on the car door but that was at least 2 years ago.. I'm seeing a dermatologist this week to see what he thinks.. no headaches from this just not sure why it won't go away.. Judy

lump on head
I have the same problem above my right temple.It isn't painful. It is hard and I remember it being there for awhile, but for some reason i feel as though it got bigger. I have experienced some of the same symptoms as you, and I am also 20 years old. I think that Im going to go see a doctor to get it checked out.
