  • My mother is prone to small cysts. Me, I had a fatty tumor removed, which are never melignant.

    I would find someone, like a skin Dr., that will take your seriously. Usually cysts and the like are nothing major to worry about, just mostly annoying, but best to check them out.

  • I just had a fatty tumor removed from my forehead. I still thinks it's in there but the doctor says it's just swelling. I talked to a dematologist.

  • The one on the back of your head could be a lymph node. Not sure about the one on top of your head. Have youo noticed whether or not they've changed over the past year or so?

  • I had a cyst removed from my head a few years ago. the doctor said it was just a fatty tumor. nothing to worry about. I would call a doctor who i trust and have them removed.

  • Sounds like a cyst to me too. My girlfriend just had one removed. I'd go see a dermo doctor to be sure.
