Lump On The Lower Left Of The Scalp, Hard And Painless?
Hello, I am Julia, aged 17, this week a small pimple-like lump has appeared on the left side of the head (hair), then in the last 2 days there were 4 small bumps in the lower left head area (on the left ear side). 2 bumps in the lower left hair section (near the left ear), and 2 more on the skin on the left side of the hair, which are 2 other bumps (the first “bump I mentioned). 2 bumps on the lower left hair are a bit sore to the touch (like acne), and can be pressed (not too hard) Medium 2 lumps on the skin on the left side of the hair if you hold it hard and don’t hurt. Are these lumps classified as tumors and dangerous? If you want to check with the doctor where to go? Thank you for your attention. Always success 🙂
A large number of lumps on the scalp can be caused by various disorders, including the following:
Folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicles. The lumps initially are small but can become enlarged and filled with pus. Another complaint is itching or pain in the lump. Multiple (pillar) cysts. It is a lump in which there is a pocket filled with fluid. Usually preceded because there is a previous injury / trauma in the area. Can disappear on its own or get bigger. Usually it is not painful, but if there is an infection or further injury it can cause pain too. Tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp. The main complaint is the appearance of small rashes in clusters of redness, with dry, peeling skin, and a predominant itching sensation. There are also several forms with a lump that is bigger and filled with pus. Irritant contact dermatitis, pimples, etc. To determine whether a tumor is a dangerous tumor or not, of course, it must be examined directly by a doctor. You can first consult a dermatologist to find out about the cause of the lump.
While at home, there are a few tips you can do:
Do not scratch or attempt to puncture / break any lumps that are there. Try replacing the shampoo with ingredients containing selenium sulfide. Do not exchange combs, towels, hats. Take pain relievers when necessary. This is my explanation, hopefully useful.
