Lumps on back of head....what are these?

I can feel lumps on the back of my head. I did not have these before. These do not hurt. It just feels weird. When I touch them I think of some bald guy with ripples in the back of his head. Even if I bend my head toward my knees I still feel these. I don't consider myself to have a fat head though I am overweight. I noticed these because of a headache I had and I was rubbing the back of my head for relief. Should I be concerned?

  • If they're at the back of your head in line with the bottom of your ears, they're prob. glands. You have glands all over your face and neck and I don't remember the names of these particular ones. They could be swollen due to allergies. Just call your doc. He might tell ya it's the same thing. Maybe get some benadryl. Swollen glands usually don't hurt (except for tonsils) and I had the same prob. once (when I was 16) and benadryl reduced the swelling by like...90 percent.
