Hello, I have had severe migraines for the past couple of years that have become more severe and frequent within the past year. I have recently noticed a large lump at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>base</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skull</span> next to my spine that feels about the size of a quarter. I've noticed that my migraine pain starts around the lump and goes behind my left eye. Could this be a knot or something more serious?

About 3 years ago I noticed a hard mass at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>base</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skull</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>on the left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> my neck. Probably 1/2" large. I hadn't noticed it before. It wasn't painful, it was very hard, fixed, and circular shaped. I had my EMT father look at it, and he passed it off saying it just felt like I had an oddly shaped skull. So, I mostly forgot about it since it wasn't bothersome, and he didn't express cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>oncern. A year or so later, I noticed the same mass.

It feels like I got hit there really hard with something, and now its bruised and very sore. But I didnt hit my head there and I dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ont see a bruise. Its very sore to touch it, and now this morning, the tender area is even bigger. It doesnt feel physically any different than the other side. I have the same bbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ony bump background-color: #dae8f4'>on the other side.
