** Lump/soft Tissue Query....help!! **
 
Hi, firstly, please don't pounce on me if this is being asked in the wrong place, or to the wrong person...

On the left hand side of my head, I have 2 things to note...one of which is that my skull appears to be a different shape than the right hand side...just a vague sort of ridge in parts, like I bumper my head as a child or something (dont think I did!)..

The other thing is that around the same area I have what feels like a very soft, perhaps fatty layer under the skin...barely visible without actually touching it mind you, but there all the same...

Also, on the same side, I have 2 moles...they look like regular moles to me, and havent changed since I shaved my head and noticed them for the first time..

My question is, do I have anything to worry about? Do cancers and the likes appear in such a way, or should I be looking for small, hard lumps? It's been brought to my attention that fatty buildups can occur but are harmless...

Anyways, any help would be very much appreciated (so far I have avoided seeing my doctor..)

Thanks in advance,

Concerned student..

Are they small in diameter? If they are, they could just little... bumps filled with oil I guess. I forgot the name for them. They're harmless, but you can get them removed.
