Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com

Lump on the head can be caused by various factors such as:
• Infection
• Hematoma or bleeding in the subcutaneous tissue, for example due to head injury/trauma
• Lipoma
• Cyst
• Bone calcification
• Inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis)
• Tumors
• Malignancy

Headache is a common complaint and can occur in the whole head or in certain parts, usually accompanied by complaints such as nausea, vomiting, or chills. Based on the cause, headaches can be divided into primary headaches and secondary headaches.
A primary headache means that the headache is not the result of another disease. Examples of primary headaches are tension headaches, migraines, clusters, stress, fatigue, etc.
Meanwhile, secondary headaches are headaches that occur due to the influence of other illnesses such as flu, sinusitis, ear infections, etc.

Tingling in the hands or feet can be caused by many factors, including:
• Prolonged stress (eg sleeping with head pressed against hand)
• Doing activities that use hands excessively
• Diabetes
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Diseases that damage nerves such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors
• Kidney disorders
• Liver disease
• Vitamin B12 deficiency

It is difficult to determine the exact cause of your complaint without doing a direct examination. Therefore, I suggest you to check with a doctor. The doctor will conduct a medical interview, physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, biopsies, CT scans, etc. if needed. Appropriate treatment will also be given after the cause is known.

Some tips you can do:
• Avoid massaging or squeezing lumps
• Avoid breaking lumps
• Compress lumps
• Take pain relievers such as paracetamol if the pain is unbearable

That's my answer, hope it helps.
Regards, Dr. Sylvia
