knot at the base of skull

In your opinion what could be a knot at the base  of the skull? Theres  lots of pain.  Could it be a bone spur?

Hi,
Well it could be anything from an enlarged lymph node to folliculitis to a cyst. I mean a knot sounds very non-specific and further details would be needed. I am sorry but it is very difficult to say anything else with this information. If it has been persisting, would recommend an evaluation by your PCP.
