I have been taking pain meds all day, heat, message, and range of motion to no avail. I have also been having chronic headaches for several weeks, are these linked to the mass?

It seems to be a sebacious cyst. you need Xray neck and sonography to confirm cyst and its extension. It may requir cyst excision. Headache can be related to this lesion because of vascular or nerve compressions supplying the scalp.
