Patient replied :

I cant get a picture of it as in on my scalp. Hair is to thick to take a picture.



As you understand, it's very difficult to comment on a lump without actually seeing or examining it. It could be a sebaceous cyst from your description.

It would be best to visit your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Also it would be best to confirm the diagnosis and then accordingly take the decision of whether to excise it or not.

Take care
