HI,Dear Carson-Very Good Morning from India.Thanks for your query.I understand your concerns.I studied your query in depth.
-I would advise you to just forget the obsession for this lump as it is simply a -infceted boil, chronically present,and painful due to the trauma from combing presses,you did last night.
-Its not serious and you need not worry for it.
-You just have to consult your ER doctor-who would treat it with-Tb NSAIDs, Antibiotics for 5 days if need be.Advise not to handle it repeatedly.
-IF its chronic cyst-ER Surgeon would Excise and send for biopsy and treat it accordingly.
-So forget obsession of lump in the head.
-Hope this relieves your worry-some query. Wellcome for anymore queries in time to come.
