a bump on top of my skull/head - is it normal?

i read some people have some soft spots on the back of their heads but I noticed a bump on top of my head that is bone hard and doesn't hurt anymore than pressing hard on any other part of my head. I do have a regular checkup with doctor at end of the month but should i try to schedule an xray/mri with a specialist to be sure since my regular doctor prob refer me to them anyway? I am hoping it is just a "normal bump" and nothing else and i havent had any "impairment" since finding it or anytime before. if it is really bad any symptoms i can notice?thanks!

And also what kind of specialist do i go see for this type of problem? thanks!
