It could be a neck bone spur. Look for any sores or scratches in your scalp as this could be a swollen lymph node trying to rid your scalp of infection. See a doctor if there are no other symptoms. If the lump is in the hairline it could be an ingrown hair or a Furuncle, a Furuncle is basicall…y a large infected hair follicle which is red, swollen, tender, and has a central core of pus like a pimple. These require incision and drainage along with antibiotic therapy, failure to keep the neck clean can contribute to these. A Carbuncle is a collection of Furuncles and are most commonly seen in the elderly, diabetics, and debilitated persons with compromised immune systems. They commonly occur at the base of the neck. It could also be a Wen or Sebaceous Cyst, these are slow growing benign cyst that can occur on the scalp and contain a white cheesy-like substance. They can be drained but usually will recur unless the cyst wall is removed, sometimes there is just one or their can be several. They are also seen in body builders using anabolic steroids. There are glands in the back of the neck. These are the occipital lymph nodes, the posterior cervical lymph nodes and the jugular chain of lymph nodes. If we assume that this is a lymph node then most of the time the cause is an infection. The only clinical concern is to rule out any possibility of malignancy. I am leaning towards an infection but given the constraints of the internet I feel that I have not been able to satisfyingly rule out possible malignancy. Ofcourse it could be a myriad of other things which are less alarming. Aneurysms tend to be throbbing on touch (you can feel a very strong pulse there). Being in the back of the neck that wouldn't be a classical presentation. I would recommend you have someone look at it. There is no substitute for clinical examination in your case. . A hard lump that is on the back of your neck where your hairline starts is a swollen lymph node. Lymph nodes in that area tend to swell up and become firm in the presence of an ear infection or tooth abscess/impaction - but the infection may not even be prominent. If the swelling persists for months or more, see your doctor and inquire about lymphoma, which is potentially fatal. . Although this lump could be a lymph node it sounds highly unlikely and it could be an in-grown hair, hard cyst (not cancerous in most cases) or a bony spur. It's best to see your doctor and have it removed if possible. . Everyone has that lump. It's part of neck and head, it's a joint section. (MORE)

If you were to take a lump of coal and squeeze for a long time at very high temperatures what would you end up with?
It is possible that you could end up with a diamond. But the temperatures and pressures involved would be extraordinarily great and unreproduceable in a unspecialised environment. Also, the diamond created will be much smaller than the lump of coal use to produce it.
A lump is when you get hit by something or someone and it gets swallen and blood rushes to that place and it goes big.

The coal dust burns more quickly because it has a greater surface area to be exposed to the flames of the fire, therefore it burns quicker than the lump of coal.
cause that's what It does, coal naturally burns in one fuel sourceso that's what makes it up to be burning in a coal stock, once thecoal is burned it creates heat energy which is naturally anonrenewable resource once it is actually burned.
Powdering the coal vastly increases the surface area. As a result, the coal burns more evenly, predictably, and cleanly, with fewer off-gases and less waste.
The tradition of teaching children that they would receive a lump of coal in their stockings if they were bad, began in Norway. In Norway, Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas) is a Catholic Bishop accompanied by an enslaved blackamoor named "Zwarte Piet" (Black Peter in English). Complete with black woolly ha…ir, and Al Jolsen style black-face, he is doomed to lug Santa's bag of presents as his personal elfin slave (played by children in black-face). As the legend goes, if a child has been bad, zwarte Piet will reach into his back and grab a coal and permanently turn the white child black. You can search the web for images of zwarte Peit that range from the comical to the occultic. The tradition continues as part of Nordic Christmas celebration today in the greater part of Europe, and post Colonial Central and South America, and much of the Caribbean. (MORE)
Coal mining has followed the history of the human race. Prehistory Hunter -- Gatherer populations sought coal usually found near surface areas. Coal is not always under the Earth, rather it can be in a geological 'seam' that is exposed to the human eye - accessible. Digging and exploration min…ing on a large scale is recorded as early as 2,000 BC. Prehistory cave drawings over 8,000 years old or older often utilize coal as a 'paint', much like chalk. Indigenous peoples sought coal and different coal types - keeping camp fires smoldering, hotter fires, 'Portable Fire', sterilization of clothing / wound sealing, human and animal body paints, purification of water, cooking tools, personal care tools, weaponry (blades, arrowheads, fire). One area for excellent examples of the history of coal and human development can be found in the verbal and now recorded history of American Indian populations in N. America, where coal was utilized in extremely innovative ways. Coal was staple for life and death (war paint - adornment of burial sites). IronHorse improved answer (MORE)
