Okay so I'm 22 and I have had a hard knot that feels like a bone on the back of my head for several years. I often feel headaches from that area and lately its been giving me anxiety thinking of what it could be? ANY suggestions? It's small but a hard knot on the back right of my head.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the hard knot like lesion on the head that you describe without examining it. If the hard knot has been persistent for quite some time, or if it is painful, or if it has been growing in size, you should consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider at the earliest for a thorough evaluation done to look for the exact cause for the hard knot on back of head that you describe. Further treatment options would be suggested based on the evaluation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
