Question: Lump on the right side of my head

 chetan123 - Sat Mar 12, 2005 8:43 pm


ive noticed recently that a Lump on the right side of my head has got a lottle bigger. I forst noticed this lump about 3 years ago, and was a little smaller and didnt really pay much attention to it.

The lump is is 3-4 inches above the top of my right ear. It is exactly vertical to my ear. The limp has less feeling than any other part of my head, and seems quite solid, but it can be moved slightly. It about the size of a peanut.

What made me really notice it, was that i had a helmet on, which seems to have put pressure on it, and now ive got a slight headache, and its origin is from the lump.

I am 23 years old now.

Any help or comments are greatly appreciated.
