Black boil on side of head. Worried

Hi Doc, I just saw a black boil that is smaller than a green pea in size in my husband's head. It looked to me as if its blood but its actually black in color. I'm really worried , could this be something serious ? It looks like it started as a very small pimple like think and it grew into this black boil.

Any information will be helpful. I just don't want it to get infected and grow into something more serious.

Thanks for the query
your description of pea sized black boil which look like blood makes me think of a condition called pyogenic granuloma. Google search for it and get the site. you can see picture and compare. Hope this helped.
