Underneath skin painless bump on right temple

Patient: I have a bump on my right temple that is hard. It is not visible above the skin, and is painless. I have poked it with pins and fluid originally came out, but no longer. The bump is still there. People have asked me if it’s a tumor, and frankly, I don’t know the answer to that. I sure hope it’s not. Help?

 

 

Symptoms: None
