Lump on the right side of the back of my head I think it might be a tumor! Please Help!!

I’m 16 and have found a lump on the right side of my lower head on the hairline.
It doesn’t hurt, and I haven’t had any major head aches or seizures. I am a
Hypochondriac, so I’m fearing it might be a tumor. I can sort of move it around,
but it is hard. I had the school nurse check it out, and she said it was red. It
might be a cyst I guess, but I can be sure. Please Help!

    Hi, Travis, as per your description, the lump on the back of your head maybe a Sebaceous cyst or Lipoma. These can be non tumourous. An USG ( ultrsonography) & blood investigations can confirm it. Consult a General surgeon for further help, as it needs to be examined physically. Take care & warm regards.
