I have a dime sized hard knot on the base of my skull right at my hairline. It is hard and immovable. No other symptoms. It is not painful to the touch. Should I be worried.

Can you attach the photos here? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? When did you notice? Is it getting bigger? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

How old are you? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Cough? Night Sweats? Weight loss?
