I can feel a lump on my right head scalp
Q: A woman in her late 30s. I had an irregular life for a week. I slept late a lot, and I fell asleep around 3 a.m. yesterday. I woke up this morning, did what I had to do, came home, and had dinner.
I accidentally touched my side hair and something like a bump popped out. When I touch it, it feels hard. It is about 4cm long and is located just above the sideburns. If you touch it, there is no pain, but if you press it hard, you can feel the pain. It doesn’t hurt too much.
It’s not noticeable enough to wake up in the morning and not to recognize that the lump was sticking out until evening. I feel unpleasant when I touch it with my hands, so I’m worried.
Can you get a lump on your head or scalp without bumping into anything? It’s not as soft as a bump, but as hard as a bone. Would it be better to go to the hospital right away? Or should we take some time and wait for natural healing? If I have to go to the hospital, I wonder where I should go, such as a head scalp lump.
A: You can diagnose it accurately only by looking at the condition yourself, but it seems that you have a lipoma or nasal lump in your scalp. Sometimes, if it’s too hard, there may be something wrong with the bone. If you visit the plastic surgery clinic and consult, you will make a definite diagnosis.
