Bump on back of head, what could this be ?

I jus found out I have swimmers ear and was given ear drops and have been dealing with a head cold for about two weeks. I woke up today with a bump on the back left side of my head not too big but hurts when I apply pressure to it. I still feel pressure in my head but but not sure if its the cold. Could this bump be cancer or tumor?

Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

No, the bump is not a cancer, it cannot develop in a day... that too, in you patient, there are less chances , cancer is seen in oldage... It may be a folliculitis... nothing much to worry, you it will heal by itself, or else you can apply ketoconozole cream... for ear problem you need to get examined by a ENT specialist...
Hope I have answered your question..
