A lump on the head that bleeds is not a brain tumor. It could be a benign lesion such as a mole or cyst, or it could be an infection such as an abcess. It might also be skin cancer, so it is always a good idea to have it looked at and biopsied if it looks suspicious. Some skin cancers are locally invasive only and do not spread. Some less common types do spread if left untreated. So it is smart that you have arranged for its removal and examination under a microscope.
