little bump on my head won't go away.

User Profile
I have a little bump on the front of my head that won't go away. I've squeezed it before and blood came out, but it still came back. If I mess with it like pushing down on it, it'll give me a headache. What could it be?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the bump on head that you describe without examining it. If it has been persistent, and symptomatic, you should consider getting it examined by your doctor/healthcare provider. Based on the examination findings, further investigations might be carried out to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/ healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
