Small bump in the head
I have a small bump (lump) in the head for last 3 years. It started very small but now it had  grown to around 1-1.5 cm and looks stable for time being. It doesn't hurt or anything. When pressed hard it feels like a concentrated fat. Kindly let me know if it is a cause of concern. Thanks.
