Bump on the top of my head

I have a small bump on the top of my head. I keep scratching it off, but it keeps coming back. When ever I scratch it off there is a small amount of blood, but very little.

Hello,
These symptoms can be due to a cystic lesion like pilar cyst or a benign growth on the scalp which needs to be ruled out by means of a physical examination and biopsy of the bump skin scrapings.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
