Hi thanks for your question.
The position of swelling on your head you have not mentioned.If this swelling is on anterio lateral aspect of your head,then this swelling on head could be related to lump in on right side of neck.The lump in the right side neck could be enlarged lymph nodes secondary to swelling on head.If the swelling on head is on posterior part of head then there is no relation between the two and both are independent swelling.I would suggest you to consult a physician who may be able to examine you to establish any relation between the two and may prescribe you appropriate treatment.
Hope this answers your question.
