    Hello mandysmom,

    I know you posted this along time ago but can I ask where in your temple do you mean and what size are these ? The reason I ask is that I currently have a small lump in my temple which gives me a stabbing pain if I press it, I wondered whether it was a little lymph node but Im not sure if we have nodes near our temples ?

    Wen's cysts. They are non-cancerous cysts that come and go in the scalp area. They can be removed in a general surgeon's office.

    Hello Smithn,

    thanks for your reply.. what kind of size can these cysts be- mine is really quite small. Also it is well under the skin, cant be seen, only felt and moves around like a lymph node does.... is that what they can be like ?

    Your help is greatly appreciated
