Re: Lump on back of head;cancer?
cancerous lumps don't just come and go like that, but if you're worried you should see a doctor to check it out. From what you said in your post though it sounds like little hair follicle cysts which happen when hair follicles gets blocked and the natural oil can't get out. Try scrubbing them extra well when you wash your hair, but also just changing your shampoo may help. Try some soap free or hyperallergenic shampoos because they tend to be gentler and better for the scalp and oil production. Also when you wash your hair, don't wash, rinse, repeat, only wash it once so that you don't strip all the oil out because the oil glands will just produce even more oil.
