Pain on the left of head, noticed a hard lump on temporal hairline that hurts on touching. What could this be?

Hi I woke up over night with pain on the left side of my head, I went to the washroom and noticed I had a hard lump on my temporal hairline, it hurts when I touch it. I don t have any headaches or any other symptoms besides when I touch first I thought it was a spider bite but I m not so sure now.. What could this be and is it dangerous?
