Raised lump on the forehead, increasing in size, itchy, comes and disappears rapidly. Thyroid sign?

41 y/0 female...I have a large lump on my forehead . It starts out as a small pea size bump and gradually gets larger. It is about a 1/4 inch raised off my forehead. It starts out with a little itchiness, but minimal pain. It comes on almost as fast as it goes away, this is the second time it has happened in the last 4-6 month s. I don t know if this is a sign to go get my thyroid checked out or what.

hi only by raised lump on the forehead that too with 4-6 months gap is not a indication of thyriod disease.if it is associated with other symptoms like weight change,menstruation irregularities,hairfall,acne ,changes in b.p then rule out thyriod disease by doing thyroid profile test.i think it is only any insect or mosquito bite,.it subsides by its own within 2-3 days or apply just calamine lotion along with oral atarax 25 mg at nght to relieve from itching
