Thank you for posting your query.

The common reasons for your scalp lesion could be an infection or a benign tumour.

The chance of it being cancer is very less.

You can get it examined by a doctor for confirmation of diagnosis, however, it is not an emergency.

Wishing you good health,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
