Hi

Most scalp cysts are not dangerous and are benign..if your lump is getting bigger then you should see a dermatologist for being assured it is just benign and harmless..

hi..
it seems to be a hair follicle infection or a sebaceous cyst. These usually are symptomless and wont cause any harm in long run,unless they grow bigger in size.
Apply olive oil or aloevera oil daily before sleeping. Do not press it. If the size grows bigger,or if it starts hurting, then consult a doctor.Thanks

HI
MOST OF SUCH LESIONS ARE HARMLESS AND SHOULD NIT BE WORRIED ABOUT. THESE MAY BE ABNORMAL SKIN GROWTHS OR HYOERTROPHIED SKIN LAYERS IN THAT PARTICULAR AREA. KEEP A WATCH ON THE SIZE IF THE LESION. CONSULT A SURGEON IF THE LESION GROWS IN SIZE
