What other symptoms are present? The lump could be due to benign issues like sebacious cyst, lymphadenitis, lipoma or from possible serious cause like malignancy. While direct physical examination is essential. additional diagnostic tests such as imaging studies may need to be done. Not all walk-in clinics have laboratory and imaging facilities and it is best that you have this evaluated first. A referral to an Head and Neck specialist may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
There haven't been anyy other symptoms other than the occasional headache, which is most probably due to the heat wave we've been experiencing. The lump hasn't gotten any larger, and I have a physical exam scheduled at my regular doctor in two weeks. I'm going to ask him then.
Thanks for the updates.Headache may indeed be associated with the heat as well as other issues such as primary headache, error of refraction, or even blood pressure changes. It is good that there are no changes in the lump regarding the lump size and symptom. Do keep us posted on your physical exam consult. Take care always.
