If the bump is formed under the skin, while closer to the beginning of the scalp, it can be atheroma. The difference between atheroma and lipoma is the presence of a black spot in the center of the tumor.
Over time, the lump increases and the process of suppuration begins, accompanied by pain. Of course, you can independently bring the contents of atheroma, but it is better to contact the attending specialist.
