Hard Lumps On Back of Head And Neck

For over a year now I have had a hard lump on back of neck that hasn't changed. Today, while bathing I found a tick imbeded in my scalp. I removec tick and began checking for more. I found a hard lump on the back of my skull on the opposite side of neck lump and I think just below where the tick was - to my left, just above where the skull meets the neck. And yes I do have itchy scalp that flakes. I was told it was some sort of skin condition -phsoriasis?- I don't know how to spell it. But that was what I dismised neck lump resulting from. So is lump possibly cancer? Another reaction to itchy scalp, or tick spit. I doesn't hurt but is slightly tender if I touch it alot.

Re: Hard Lumps On Back of Head And Neck
I have the exact same problem, minus the neck part. Were you able to find out anything about the lump on the back of your skull?

Lump And Pain In Neck
Over the past 5 weeks i have developed a lump on the back left of my neck. There is also some pain down my neck. I also suffer from pain on the right breast and just under my breast. Are the two linked?

when dealing with things like this, people very often try to make excuses for it. DO NOT assume it is a coincidence go to a doctor; i didn't and now i have to deal with the consequences of almost a year of chemo which the doctor says i could have avoided.
