Really hope I'm totally wrong here but I think that myxomatosis can sometimes begin witjh lumps and swellings round head area. We used to keep rabbits many years ago and that did happen to ours. However it is probably something harmless and I do hope so...someone more knowledgeable than myself will post I'm sure. Best wishes!
I would take him to the vet if you are at all worried. Small animals like rabbits, hamsters etc often don't show outwardly that they are feeling unwell - a hang-over from the wild when showing illness or weakness would probably mean being eaten by a predator. A vet could put your mind at rest. Hope he's OK.
