Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Is it soft?
Where on your head?
It is hard and it's near the top of my head. I am wondering if it's been caused by a bump i've received at some point (as I am quite clumsy).
It could be from trauma
It could be a lipoma (a fatty tumor - that is benign and easily removed).
But, to be sure this should be evaluated in person by your doctor.
Would a lipoma be hard?
But, unlikely this is anything serious or concerning.
A lipoma is a fatty tissue
tumor that is NOT a cancer
The reason I haven't gone to my doctor is because I am on a long stay in Canada at the moment, my Doctor is in the UK
A Doctors appointment could cost me quite a lot, but do you think it's worth it?
Well it would be worth just to be taken care of.
But, it is not an emergency either most likely
But, I would recommend getting seen in the next 1 to 2 months IF this lump does not decrease in size.
I Hope this helps
If you have more questions, please ask
Ok, thanks for your help!
