Hi i am 16 old boy, These feel like bones and are on both sides, one is a little larger. I noticed this just yesterday and was wondering if this is sign of cancer or just normal pains? I also don't remember hurting myself in those areas so i don't think it is from a injury.
please help, thank you.

No one can tell without an examination unfortunately. Do these swellings continue to grow? Does the pain increase?
These could be anything from a scalp infection to an occipital lymph node.
Please have it checked by a physician!
