Can you decribe exactly what it feels like
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
soft lump, can't touch, or lay on it, headache on left side, have had this for 2 weeks, just now it really hurts, my Dr. is out of country, or would go also hurts in my neck. I have a bad back, at first I thought it was from my back, then found this lump, started hurting when shampooed my hair. could it be limp nodes?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
Anything without an exam is an educated guess.
It is not in a likely place for a node.
It sounds like an infected sebaceous cyst.
The cyst is not serious, but the infection can become serious if it spreads.
Go to urgent care or the ER.
Use hot compresses in the meantime.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

That would imply infection.
