A Bump On The Back Of The Head That Feels Painful After An Accident?
, I had an accident 3 weeks ago with a right fracture injury .. suddenly a lump in my right back head that hurt … it happened yesterday, the lump felt hard and also painful but not to the headache .. what I asked what is the cause of this painful lump? Is it because of an accident that I experienced a few weeks ago, or indeed because of other causes … thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I want to confirm, when the crash occurred on your head? If yes, then there is still the possibility of a bump occurring due to a collision on the head. But if there is no collision in the head, then the possibility of the emergence of the lump is not related to the accident you are experiencing.
The following are some of the possible causes of a bump on the back of the head:
infection of the scalp (can vary from folliculitis, ulcers, to abscesses under the scalp)
Pillar cyst (pockets containing keratin from the hair follicle)
tumor on the bone
To be able to know the exact cause, you should check with your doctor so that you can do a direct examination. Immediately go to the doctor if you feel an enlarged lump, feels very painful, there is swelling in the surrounding tissue, the lump ruptures and fester.
For now, you can try to sleep using a thick, soft pillow so that the lump is not depressed much and causes pain while you sleep. If pain is very annoying, you can take pain relievers like paracetamol.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
