What does swelling at the back of the head indicate?

Good evening, for the last six, or more years I have had a swelling at the back of my head, left hand side. It is not painful, but I wonder what it could be and is it worth seeing my GP about it. I am male, turned 80 last year, in good health apart from high blood pressure and colesterol on the borderline. Looking forward to your advice, sincerely, Horst
