I have had a lump
On my scalp for over 2 months now, I don’t think it is getting bigger but I have noticed more red dots appearing around it. The biggest red mark is a little raised with a lump underneath which moves and is not firm. There is also a dip around the lump in my scalp. What could this be ?
