Bump on top of head?

Wondering if anyone else has gotten red bumps on thier head before? I've had a red raised bump on my head for a month now. Much like my leg two years ago I am thinking I hit it at work or its from my hard hat? Starting to get suspicious. It has been there for a month now and some days it's painful and tender to touch and others I don't notice it much? Curious if anyone else has encountered such a thing?

It's not a subcutaneous cyst is it?

I hope not. That sounds bad. It feels like a cut but I know I didnt hit it. It kind of comes and goes. Right now it's flaring up

Don't worry about it being a cyst as they're very common. Having said that, go and get it checked out at your doctors, better safe then sorry.

I have had them, the Dr put me on antibiotics, i had to have 3 lots before they cleared now i have a spare box to use if they come back, i can get them sorted before they become a problem. Only had to use the spare twice but, cleared within a few days instead of waiting for a Dr's appointment so giving them a chance to get hold.

See your Dr he will now the best course to take and also put your mind at rest. Good luck XX

So I don't know about across the pond but here in canada it would take 6 months before I'd see the dermatologist and by then my body has sorted it out. I swear my vasculitis is messed up. Any way the bump is mysteriously gone. Like it was never there. Really wondering if being outside camping is a fix. Lol. Listening to the Beatles love is all you need. Just got to enjoy life. Try to as much as you can.

Spoke too soon. Just got up from sitting at the fire for the last couple hours just chilling and ok I'm on an incline but now that I got up I have a wierd bump/nodule and I know it's my veins and the blood was cut off. All from relaxing. Have I said I am enjoying life. Lol. One thing is for sure. I am learning everyday how not to do things. Maybe one day I will get it right. I'm writing this standing and rubbing my belly bump to get the blood flowing in my 60 year old arterised veins.
