:confused:MY EIGHT YEAR OLD SON HAS A LUMP ON THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD ABOVE HIS EAR AND ABOUT TWO INCHES IN DIAMETER.IT IS ON THE BONE WHICH STICKS OUT A BIT ANYWAY AND IS NOT THAT PROMINENT BUT IS THERE.
HE HAS HAD THIS FOR NEARLY A MONTH AND HAS BEEN SEEN BY THREE DOCTORS .IN WEEK 2 HE HAD A CONTINUAL HEADACHE AND VERY DISTURBED SLEEP SO I PANICKED A BIT.
ALL THE DOCTORS CHECKED FOR NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS (NO SCANS)BUT COULDNT FIND ANY AND TOLD ME TO COME BACK IN 2 WEEKS.I WILL BE GOING BACK AT THE END OF THIS WEEK.
HIS HEAD IS SORE IF PRESSED BUT NOT SO TENDER THAT IT HURTS WITH SLIGHT TUOCH.
HE IS COMPLAINING THAT IT HURTS ABOVE THE LUMP TOO.THE DOCS SAID IT WAS PROBABLY A HEMATOMA THAT WOULD SETTLE EVENTUALLY.
ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?THANKS.
