Occipital bulge

Anybody notice a significant bulge of tissue at the base of their skull? My wife thinks it looks weird but I think its just the attachment of my traps to my head. Its only visible if I lean my head back. I don’t think my overall bodyfat is high enough for it to be fat and the skin isn’t loose. Comments?

In my athletic training book there is a picture of a guy with who has a bulge at the base of his skull. He was diagnosed with a subluxated atlas. I have no idea if thats what your talking about, i just remember seeing it.

Nah. I don’t think that’s it. Its more like the bulge thick necked football players get only the traps are not that wide on the side of my neck.
