Hi.
Please be a little more elaborate. How long has the lump been there? What was the size? Has it completely subsided now? It sounds like anything but a pimple. But if it has subsided and if now your daughter is not facing anyproblem then just wait and watch.

Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
You seems to getting sebaceous cyst ,which are common on scalp and they have a small hole pr a pore in the center...when you squeeze then you can see a yellow fluid like material coming out.If thats so ,then you need to consult a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon who can remove it surgically .
take care,
