Bumps on head

Recently I have noticed that I have what seems like three big bumps on the top of my head.  They feel like the kind of bumps you get after hitting your head really hard.  However, I have not hit my head anytime recently.  I am just wondering if you can tell me what these may be, and if they are serious or not.  At this point, they are just annoying, but they also hurt when I comb my hair.  I have also noticed that I have been losing hair in these specific areas.  Is it possible that these bumps are causing hair loss as well?  Thanks.

Mike:

The most common bumps on the head (besides from bumping) are pilar cysts.  They are benign, though annoying, and pretty easy to remove.  But they don't cause hair loss.  I can't think of any bumps that do, off the top of my head.  (Sorry.)

Doesn't sound serious, but maybe you should have a doc look at them next visit.

Best.
