If the lump/bony bump is indeed a permanent fixture near the base of the skull, it's most likely the classic "External Occipital Protuberance". If, however, this is a new growth on the skull, or if you became aware of it due to sudden pain or swelling, or if it is actually situated on your neck, it could be one of many other things, such as a tumor or lymph node. This posterior (rear) view and lateral view of a human skull may help. - http://www.infovisual.info/03/016_en.html
