Question Bump on back of head

My daughter was cutting my husband's hair last night and noticed a bump on the back of his head about the size of a quarter. It moves around and feels squishy like a fatty tumor. Of course he is going to see a Dr. but I was wondering of anyone out there has had this same thing and if it is serious.

No one has experienced a similar problem? Should I go to another board? He also started complaining about headaches this morning.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Could be anything really from a benign growth over an insect bite (or similar infection) to cancer, so hanging around on a message board is not going to help your husband - get him to a doctor, whatever it is is obviously pressing on his brain and causing him discomfort so whether it's benign or not it needs to be taken care of!
