What could be the lump below occipital bone on right side in line with lobes?

Hi, I have a lump just below my occipital bone on the right hand side in line with my lobes... I had it a few weeks ago and it was quite small, it s been a hard painless lump from when it was small. It s now grown to almost a marble sized but it s not completely round is it anything to worry about?

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having sebaceous cyst or lipoma.
Consult your doctor and get examined.
There might be possibility of having enlarged lymph node as well.
Ok and take care.
