Lumps on the head have various causes, ranging from benign to malignant conditions, which require removal, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic generally recommending minor surgery which can also ensure great cosmetic results on a private day case surgery basis.

Regarding lumps on the neck, these skin growths can also be caused by trauma, enlarged lymph nodes, bacterial or viral infections, swollen salivary glands, sebaceous cysts, abscesses, boils, autoimmune diseases, benign tumors or, in more severe cases, cancer (Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia, melanoma, metastasized cancer, non-melanoma skin cancers, thyroid cancer).

Eyelid lumps, besides being highly unsightly, are also very bothersome, presenting symptoms such as redness, eyelid swelling, tenderness, discoloration, discharge, eye crust, pain, discomfort when blinking, blurry vision or itchiness.
