Have bump on head, not painful. Inflamed muscle?

Hi I have a bump on the back left side of my head, a little above my hairline, i do not know where it came from because I haven t bumped my head and I m 100% positive of that. It doesn t hurt until I press it, or lay my head down on something. I went swimming a few days ago, and that night I discovered this bump. while I was swimming, I dove under and (the pool is 10 foot deep) my ears both popped. I was thinking I could ve let water in and now I have an inflamed muscle. But I figured it would ve been gone by now, I ve had it for 4 days now and it hasn t went down or stopped hurting. I do not have swimmers ear or a cold . What could this be? Pleaseeeeee help!

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having some infection in your ear might be due to swimming.
Or it may be due to some infection on scalp like dandruff,dermatitis or boil.
I would suggest to go for antibiotic medicine for 3-5 days.
Ok and bye.
