What does it mean if I have a lump at the base of my skull?

Answer

A lump at the base of the skull can be caused by various things. The most common cause is a blow to the head that has resulted from a trauma or an injury. Other causes can be from an abscess, an epidermal cyst, or a benign lipoma. A lump at the base of the skull that does not go away within a day or two should be examined by a doctor. He or she will be able to determine the cause and provide any necessary treatment.
