Small bump on back of my head - left side

For reference I'm an 18 year old male.

Over the two days or so I've noticed a small, what feels like a bump, on the back of my head. It is on the left side of my head a couple of inches from my left ear. At first I just noticed it and it didn't cause me any pain at all. Now it is giving me a dull headache, which extends down towards my left shoulder causing stiffness. At times I can feel a little dizzy, or a little unbalanced. I can't really determine whether the bump itself is soft or hard. While the headaches aren't unbearable, it is dull and you know it is there.

As you can imagine, it does put the worry factor in me since it is my head but I don't want to overreact and say it is the worst possible. I'm just looking for a bit of advice to keep me right. Thanks very much.
