Head and Neck Cancer

Bump on the Head



I have a bump on my head about pea sized now it grows bigger sometimes then shrinks again (day to day) there is a dull pressure in my whole head when I touch it like a sinus headache. I don`t know what it is I have had it for about a year and a half and have never had it looked at, in that time it has gotten bigger at its smallest point. any ideas?


Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Any neck mass present for more than 2 weeks is considered abnormal and should be evaluated. You need a good head and neck evaluation, possibly a scan, and maybe even a biopsy. Make sure you see your physician.
