Hard Bony Lump Over Surgery Site

I had a hemangioblastoma removed in Oct 08. There is a large bump above the craniotomy site that recently began hurting, even laying on a pillow. Now when I rub the bump, it makes a crackling noise and hurts. I dont believe its an infection, it feels like a bone spur. Any ideas?

Dear Falterturm

I cannot say anything without examining you. Please show it to your neurosurgeon.
