Lump at hairline

Common Questions and Answers about Lump at hairline


Avatar n tn I seem to have a soft lump round the back of my neck, its on my hairline near my ear. I nreally don't know what it could be? Its small and soft and sticks out at bit when I bend my neck but when I sit straight it seems to go? When I flex my neck I can sort of press it...!! I recently dyed my hair about 2 days ago and was wondering if it is some sort of allergic reaction. I'm just really really worried as I'm 23 and had a friend, my age, die of cancer last year.
Avatar f tn What could cause a moveable lump behindy ear near my hairline? It have been there since October , went to the docs in dec and he said it's nothing to worry about... He said it was a swollen lymph node and it could be from my dry scalp... But it's still there..
Avatar m tn I just noticed a small lump ON the middle of my spine, on my neck about an inch below the hairline. Its the size of a marble, and not noticeable without palpating the area. Its painless, and moves very slightly only when I relax the muscles in my neck. Any suggestions on what this may be? Is there even lymph nodes near that spot? 24 yr old smoking male if that helps at all.
Avatar n tn I've also noticied that mine are at my hairline, but also in that little fat roll of skin on the back of my neck. The fat roll may also have something to do with it as I didn't have fat roll 10 years ago. I'm still not convinced it's not some type of sun damaged skin or even a form of cancer. Guess I need to have my Dr check it out, mine don't hurt like a true ingrown hair hurts, they just bug the crap out of me. Let me know if anyone figures it out.
Avatar n tn I have a small lump just on the hairline at the back of my neck. There has been a small lump there for a number of years, I only started to notice it fter the ckicken pox, for a long time I thought it was a scar until I asked my parents to have a nosy at it, their verdict was a cyst of some sort and discription. However, recently I have noticed the lump has grown slightly, enough for me to notice it more. It apparently just looks like a red lump.

1231892 tn?1267599770 Is this large lump from the brim of his brow (nose) to the hairline cause for concern? Please inform me. I am a first time mom who has waited a long time for a child and I will admit that I am being a bit concerned just because I don't want anything to be overlooked.
Avatar n tn The day before my doctors appointment i woke up with a sore throat and around my lump had swollen all up, had a headache that went into my ear. and the lump was paiful all around it. I go to the dr he looks at it and says its a cyst, take these antibiotics and come back i n2 weeks and i will remove it. About 4 days after taking the antibiotics the swelling went away, but now the lump is alot bigger that it was originally before the swelling hit it.
Avatar f tn A week or so after my throat quit hurting I started getting swollen lymph nodes on my right side at the base of my neck-shoulder area which sometimes can be seen and can always be felt. It is significantly larger than my left side. I also developed a lump between my ear and jaw. (same side) It is not something that is easily felt from the outside by others. However, I can feel it and move it around. It hurts to do so though.
Avatar n tn I noticed a couple weeks ago that I had a small lump underneath my scalp. You can't even tell it is there unless you feel it, because it looks just like part of the scalp. It also seems hard, but I prefer not to touch it. It is on the right side of my head, probably an inch, maybe less from my hairline.
Avatar n tn For about two weeks, I have discovered a lump just bellow my hairline (at the base of my skull) at the back of my head. The lump is about the size of a wall-nut. It is not painful, and very hard. It is under the skin, unlike a pimple. I went to the doctors, and he seems told me it was nothing to worry about, and that it was most likely a swollon gland. However I have never had a swollon gland in that location, and its not painful. Am I looking to much into this?
Avatar f tn You can take OTC pain killers for pain and make sure you take rest; cold compresses will also help you. The lump at the back of head could have been a boil due to dermatitis; other possibilities include a sebaceous cyst or an ingrown hair follickle.
Avatar n tn Please go get it checked out. One of my sisters(33yr) noticed a lump at the end of feb/beginning of March. Told my mom about it my mom said go to the dr. My sisters Dr. had just left his practice. It took her about 2-3wks. To get in. make a long story short she was told that she had vulva cancer. She had surgery two weeks later. Since then she has been super sick(throwing up non stop).
Avatar n tn I have a lump on the back of my neck (at my hairline to the right of my spinalcord) that has been there for almost 6 years. It is the size of a half dollar and feels hard to the touch, but can be moved around on the back of my neck. It rarely is ever painful unless i start to mess with it or i lay on that side of my neck for a long period of time. It has been about the same size for as long as i can remeber. My dad told me these cyst as he called it runs in the family.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, I seem to have developed a small lump at the back of my head (about an inch above the hairline - probably it is called the end of the occipital). It is slightly painful also. Also I can feel it (I mean I can feel it there internally). Is it a gland or something more serious? I am a bit scared. Can someone help me out please?
Avatar n tn i too have had a small pea sized lump on my ear at the back, just near to the crease. (if you put your finger just behind the lobe and rest it in the soft part, it is just above there) it is tender to touch and has been there for nearly 3 months. i dont think it has changed in size and it isnt a different colour so you wouldnt see it there until you feel it. i have not had the chance to go and see the doctor mainly because im not that worried about it but im curious to know what it could be.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctors literally three years ago about a lump in my neck, it was a swollen lymph node and it went down but it's still palpable to this day although it is tiny.
Avatar n tn Last night I noticed a lump on the back of my neck, on the right side, at the base of my skull. It's about the size of a penny and doesn't seem to be moving around or anything. It isn't real painful, only if I poke at it. I haven't had any visual issues, nor terrible headaches or nausea or anything. I had my family and a couple friends feel it and they all said it feels like a tension knot.
Avatar n tn Rarely the lump is a cancer, but any lump that has a change in texture, size, color etc or which becomes painful all of a sudden should be immediately shown to a doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
978175 tn?1304442983 It is very painful when I put pressure on it and causes some dizziness/drowsiness. On the same side at base of my hairline I feel something that feels like swollen lymph nodes. Any ideas? Just hoping it isn't urgent. (I did wake up with a headache of the left side of my head today) Neuro background: I have had migraines since I was 13 years old, now 25. Dx with a Pineal Cyst in 2007 that is 1.4 cm as of this summer.
Avatar m tn Hi I am a 20 year old male. I have noticed about 1.5 years ago a lump at the back of my head just under the hairline on the left side. It was very tender and small in the beginning but after i poked at it to check, it began to become stiffer and it kind of enlarged. It hadn't grew in size greatly i think. It's been there for more than 18 months and it's still smaller then one half of an inch. Also, it doesn't have a round shape it's more like an ellipse.
Avatar n tn I have a 5 month old girl with a hard lump (about the size of an adult thumb) on her head. It is at the top of her forehead going towards the top of her head and is kind of curved in shape. The pediatrician was stumped and is sending us to Children's Hospital to meet with a neurosurgeon. Our appointment is 4 weeks away and we are very concerned. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn I'm a 15 year old, female. For as long as i can remember ive had this lump on the back of my skull. It doesnt hurt generally unless i press it or apply pressure. If you go to the top of my spine onto my skull on the left and right side there are a small bump in the skull. Everyone has them. The right side though is slightly bigger. Its hard and has no color. I'm going to my doctor soon for my child welness check up and i'll ask her to look at it. What could it be?
Avatar f tn I have discovered a lump (not sure about the shape, round-ish, I guess, about and inch big) on the back side of my head, to the right side and just an inch above my hairline. It's not floaty nor soft, in fact it feels a lot like bone except it hurts a very little, little bit when I press on it (like a bruise). I have checked and double checked all over my head and it's the only lump I've found. I don't remember having hit my head or anything nor does this feel like a sebaceous cyst.

Avatar f tn I have a quarter sized lump on the back of my neck, right at the hairline just to the left of the center of my neck. It does not move and does not hurt. I first noticed it about 3 months ago. What could this be?
978175 tn?1304442983 It is very painful when I put pressure on it and causes some dizziness/drowsiness. On the same side at base of my hairline I feel something that feels like swollen lymph nodes. Any ideas? Just hoping it isn't urgent. (I did wake up with a headache of the left side of my head yesterday, and today the right side has hurt all day) Hx: Dx: with Vertigo 2 years ago, and ENG showed mild central dysfunction. Neuro told me nothing about test other then, it isn't a big problem yet?
Avatar m tn I have found a lump almost exactly on the hairline a week or so ago but just now I have found one maybe 1cm above the first.
Avatar m tn I have a lump on the right side of my neck, right at the base of the hairline. When I noticed it about 6 months ago it was roughly the size of a dime, hard, not attached to the skin, and whenever I touched it, I got a headache. I also have general neck stiffness, and frequent headaches. Now the lump is about the size of a silver dollar, takes up most of the right side of my neck, and it is flat, hard, and whenever I try to turn my head, it hurts.
