Skin bumps occur for a variety of reasons. Determining the best course of treatment to eliminate the bumps depends on the underlying cause. Though a bump may form under your skin after hitting your head, scalp bumps that appear without trauma indicate the presence of a skin condition. Skin conditions that cause bumps on other areas of your body may also cause bumps to form on your scalp; however, certain conditions affect the scalp more than other locations. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, sebaceous cysts commonly form on the scalp, creating the presence of slow-growing bumps under your skin.

Subcutaneous nodules of the scalp are common and usually benign. We describe a case that presented as a probable inclusion cyst or lipoma of the scalp that was discovered to be a benign osteolytic fibrohistiocytic lesion of the frontoparietal skull. This ultimately was successfully treated by neurosurgery with a craniectomy, tumor excision, and reconstructive cranioplasty. The differential diagnosis is broad and includes both benign and malignant lesions. Most lesions are radiolucent and osteolytic and are more common in young adults. Imaging studies are essential in the workup, and a biopsy is of paramount importance in establishing a diagnosis and treatment options. A year-old woman presented to the family practice clinic with a lump on her right anterior scalp; it had been present for 6 months but began annoying her once her hair stylist called attention to it. The examining physician described it as a 3-cm, ill-defined subcutaneous cystic lesion and referred the patient to the procedure clinic for excision of a probable inclusion cyst. At the time of the procedure the lump did not feel as circumscribed as an inclusion cyst, and was thought to be more likely a lipoma because it seemed to be mobile. The adjacent skull felt normal. After incision through the scalp, the lesion was found to have a shiny, grayish exterior. In the process of dissection, the lesion was incised and chunks of whitish-yellow cheesy substance were extruded. When attempting to define the inferior portion of the lesion, the irregular edge of a 2. The remaining subcutaneous abnormal tissue was removed, as was a component of the lesion's wall.

A year-old man presented to a dermatology clinic with bumps on his left arm 2 weeks after returning from a vacation in Belize, where, he recalled, he had been bitten by numerous insects. He noticed three 2-cm nodules on his arm associated with occasional lancinating pain and sensations of movement figure 1. The nodules were erythematous and had punctate openings at the centers that drained serosanguinous, nonpurulent fluid. The patient denied having other symptoms, including fever, nausea, vomiting, and rash. A year-old woman who had 2 similar lesions on her scalp accompanied the male patient. The patients' lesions were dressed with petroleum jelly under bandages, and, 1 day later, both patients were seen in the dermatology clinic. We unsuccessfully attempted to excise and drain 2 of the nodules on the male patient. Excision was not attempted on the female patient; however, several days later, after application of lateral pressure to the lesion on her scalp, a nodular, spiny cyst 13 mm in length figure 2 emerged into a thick covering of petroleum jelly.

Epidermoid and pilar cysts look like small smooth lumps under the surface of your skin. They are generally benign non-cancerous and usually cause no harm or problems. If required, they can usually be removed easily by a small operation done under local anaesthetic. The main reason why some people want them removed is for cosmetic reasons, as they can sometimes look unsightly. A cyst is a sac that is filled with a fluid or semi-fluid material. Cysts develop in various places in the body and arise from different tissues in the body. Two of the most common types of cyst that occur under the skin surface are epidermoid and pilar cysts. These cysts used to be called sebaceous cysts but this term is no longer correct, as the origin of these cysts is not from the sebaceous glands in the skin as was once thought. In both cases, the semi-fluid content of the cyst looks a bit like toothpaste. This substance is soggy keratin. Keratin is made by skin cells and is the substance that hairs are made from and the substance that covers the top layer of the skin. Both epidermoid and pilar cysts are smooth round lumps which you can see and feel just beneath the skin surface. They are very common. Often they are small pea size but sometimes they slowly get bigger over many months to become a few centimetres in diameter. They look very similar to each other but can be distinguished from each other if the cells that form the cyst sac are looked at under the microscope. It seems that some cells that are normally near to the surface of the skin cells of the epidermis or cells in hair follicles get into deeper parts of the skin but continue to multiply. This...
