There are many possibilities, the common causes being a Dermoid cyst, Meningo/Encephalocele. Does the swelling increase in size when the baby cries. Is it filled with fluid and is soft. Since it is growing in size I suggest you take her to a Neurosurgeon to get it looked at and get proper treatment.
