I have a lump/ swelling above my left ear below my temple which is painless and a small pea size hard lump right behind my left ear, I used hair dye two weeks before and a week later I got lots of little scabs on my scalp , then a week on these lumps have appeared, could it be a reaction to the hair dye or something else. My doctor doesn t know what they are, she said it could be a lipoma?
