I have a very dry patch in my scalp on my left side. That i itch constantly. The dry patch is red with a white crust- almost like psorosis. .I noticed when rubbing my neck I have a movable painless lump- possible swollen lymph node- I don't think any other nodes are swollen but I can't tell. You can not see the lump- however when I tilt my head to my right side - you can see a tiny bump. It's been there for over a month

I am not faituged .... I am losing weigh but it's my pregnancy weigh since I had a child 3 months ago - I still have an appaitite and eat well- I get hot at night and sometimes sweats not soaking more like damp usually around my nck and all††but it can be from just giving birth and hormones...

Could this be a sign of cancer.?

Re: Cancer?

Went to my OB/gyn yesterday - he said he doesn't think it's sobering to worry about and from my scalp. He said if he gets bigger or my psorisas gets worst to go to a dermatologist .

Thank you for the advice
