Hello and thanks.
NO, I did not hit my head, no redness nor swelling. It is hard to the touch but does not move. It is only very slightly sore to the touch. No sore throat, very slight headache that comes and goes but in various places, no vision issues and no other symptoms.
I did vomit once this morning but I think it was more the stress of finding a lump.
I take no medication except for probiotics.
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
As per your description,very few possibilities can be suggested such as an Abscess in initial stage,kind of tumor growth, an aneurysmal temporal bone cyst, a mild reaction to an irritation or a certain kind of infection, or any tiny blood vessel occlusion.
As you have slight headache and vomiting so you should consult your family doctor for a clinical exam.
And in the meantime you can take OTC Motrin 200 mg every 6 hourly.
Also apply warm compresses on lump.
Your blood pressure should be monitored as well.
In case of infection,antibiotics can be prescribed.
It's good to make an appointment with your doctor.
Hope this helps.

Hello,The possibilities of diagnosis of your lump are;1) Trichilemmal or pilar cysts2) Dermoid cyst3) Sebaceous cyst4) Epidermal inclusion cyst.
5) fibrolipomaThese are the most common swelling of the scalp. All of these are benign and a physical exam by a doctor would pin point the diagnosis. CT scan or MRI are rarely needed for the confirmation. Usually surgical excision is only required if there is a secondary infection or inflammation or they become painful or are nuisance during combing.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
