Bump in the lower left side of head. Having dizziness, lightheadedness. What could it be?

I have a bump in the lower left side of my head. I have not fallen or caused any trauma to cause swelling . Some days I am very dizzy doing anything. I feel lightheaded and on the brink of passing out. Sometimes I just caress it to make it feel better, and while it does at the time, as soon as pressure is removed, it feels ten times worse.

Thank you for posting your query.
The bump needs to be examined to establish its cause. It could be a spontaneous hematoma (blood collection) or a benign tumor such as lipoma. A clinical examination coupled with ultrasound would help.
In any case, dizziness seems to be unrelated to the bump.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
