Lump on skull

(7 Posts)

Last night I found a hard lump on my skull. It's on the left hand side - if you drew a line from your eye round the side and a line up from your ear, it's where the 2 lines meet, well possibly a little bit further towards the back ..... hope you get that.

It is solid - feels like bone and hurts if I fiddle with it .... which of course I can't stop doing! It's quite wide across - 2 fingertips wide. It's alarmed me as I haven't noticed it before.

Any ideas?

its probably just a bony nodule, chances are u have always had it. get it checked if its concerning u though.

Sounds like a cyst. I have sebaceous cysts on my head. They are hard and hurt if you fiddle with them. I have one removed every 18 months.

Ah mortica - I assumed a cyst would be squidgy!

It definitely wasn't there before - I fiddle with my hair ... pull out all the coarse red ones!

i had one of those lumps for a couple of months, was odd. disappeared on it's own.

Mine are definately not squidgy but they do generally take a while to a get to a substantial size so either way i would definately go and get it checked out especially if you havent noticed it before.

Better to be safe.
