Propably not making this up.

Quote from gamespots review in progress "a bulbous growth sprouted on my head, and I could no longer equip a helmet. Now I have a giant tumor growing on my neck instead of a head and no access to the defensive benefits of the black-hemmed hood I love so much!"

The bottom entry explains your egg problem a little. I can't see how you would get it and not know what it was from though. I haven't played it yet though, so maybe.

Oh god, this game scares me, I don´t want to play it, but I want.

EDIT: Ok I just re-read the OP again, and I think this guy is trolling us

No he is not. This is totally a real thing in Dark Souls. And it's freaking me out!

Read at the bottom and watch the video: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Covenants

I'm sure there's a way to cure it. But maybe the remedy is extreme. Maybe dying would help?

Oh man. This game just keeps sounding better and better.

The Souls games are not about collecting souls, they are about breaking your soul by any means necessary. From Software are some diabolical ass dudes and I love them for it.

The thing no one tells you is that your character was doomed from the beginning.

This is nothing, all it does is eat half your'e souls.

at the end of the IGN marathon they were afflicted by a curse that caused them to only do 5-10% of their regular damage and could as far as they knew only be cured on what might aswell be the other side of the world. So there you are bound to a campfire at the end of a dungeon just before the boss with a cure 2 hours worth of regular playtime away. Might aswell just delete the character when you get boned like that. Rorie couold barely survive 1 minutes while being chased in the GB quicklook sounds like a hopeless endeavour to backtrack your way in this game without fighting

Atleast that is how the ign players made it sound

strangely enough was reading about this on the wiki this morning. Which people have already linked to above. Going by that it seems like a parasite that absorbs some of the souls you get in order to grow till it hatches. Offering possible advantages/drawbacks. And the slightly disturbing aspect of your head being replaced by some egg with a worm inside O_o.

People are talking about farming certain creatures to find an antidote or that certain npcs sell it. I have yet to play the game though so it is just second hand info from the wiki and people discussing it, e.g. hereIf that is what you have run into some of that may help. Have to say I find that covenant concept and crazy stuff like this pretty cool, if a little twisted hehe. Good luck getting rid of the big unsightly egg, hopefully some of the stuff on the wiki will be of use. Unless someone has a definitive answer :)
