Head pressure, headache, hard bump on head. Not migraine. What is going on?

The past few months I've had extreme head pressure, that can either at times stay for hours, or be sudden and leave right away. I also get frequent headaches at any given time. I'll also get random sharp pains in either the back of my head, or on either side in the front, but never more than one spot at once. Recently I've discovered a small and hard bump on the left side if my head in the back going down towards the neck. Is there anything serious that could be going on? I've already went to my doctor and she said she's our of things. Thought it was sinuses and migraines, turned out not to be.

Thanks for the query
I understand your concern
I feel that that your headache and other aches could be related to tension headache. Howe ever, I suggest you to get neurologically evaluated by a local neurologist who will help you through clinical and other investigations as required. If the evaluation and if needed scans are normal, you may try medications like amitryptiline which will help reduce your pain. Please feel free and get back to me if you need any additional information
Best wishes
