After several mornings of headaches and migraines, I noticed the growth of a cyst behind my ear at the back of my head. It became quite irritable because of growing and throbbing pains similar to those of headaches, so the following morning I went to my family doctor. He suggested to me two options: do nothing at all and wait until is disappears, or should I choose for an inspection of a surgeon, they will most likely operate to remove the cyst immediately. Being only 15, I find it troubling to deal with the many migraines, and will find it understandable if I have to put up for a week or so. But after reading several previous posts I understand that some people with very similar cases found it pointless to wait, and it is even more vulnerable to infection.
I would just like to know more about what I can and should do about the cyst itself. The cyst is quite hard, immobile, painful to the touch, and if sleeping I wake up with major headaches and migraines. I'm not prepared for an operation, but I'm not prepared to cope with throbbing pains affecting my sleep habits and school education.
What should I do, or be prepared for in regards to possible outcomes?
As well, could someone help me further understand what exactly this cyst is?
