Tiny bump on scalp

I'm probably just being overly paranoid but here goes anyway~
I'm 16 years old, white, dark hair. Recently I found a small bump on my scalp. The bump is painful to the touch, and is quite hard. I haven't been able to get a good look at it but I don't think anything is coming out of it or anything... just a bump.
I think it's only been there a couple of days or so, because I would have noticed it, unless it only became sore recently. Pulling on the hair around it hurts a bit too.

My parents are the type to brush anything off until it gets really serious, so I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that it's nothing too bad. I suppose watching episodes of House lately doesn't help, either.

Re: Tiny bump on scalp

Hi. Have you seen the doctor about this? I recently discovered a bump on my daughter's scalp and we have an appointment scheduled next week. It isn't red but it is under the skin and the size of a small marble. Did you get an answer yet as to what your bump is?

Re: Tiny bump on scalp

No, I never did go to the doctor. The bump went away on its own. However, my bump wasn't that large; smaller than a corn kernel.

Good luck at the doctors!
