Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.
How big is the occipital bump?
Could you please post a photo here of the bump?
What is your age?
What are the investigations done?
Is the swelling soft or hard?
Is the skin attached to it or it is attached to skull?
Thanks for the additional information. I am writing the answer for you and will get back to you in 4-5 minutes. If you get a phone call request, you may ignore it as that is an automated site trigger. Thank you.
Your lump is unlikely to be due to lymphoma.
This can be;
1) Dermoid cyst
2) Benign bone growth like osteoblastoma.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
