Gastroenterologist: If you have health insurance, you should contact member services at the health plan, not only to find a primary care provider but, depending on your insurance , to get the names of some gastroenterologists who can help. You might consider contacting the doctor who made the diagnosis in the first place as a referring source. Best of luck!

Bad cell growth: Our bodies' cells, that make up our organs and blood and so on, normally have a very tightly regulated growth and life cycles. When these processes go awry, there can be cell growth that gets out of hand, causing harmful effects like disruption of normal functions or structures, production or overproduction of certain body chemicals, or simply using too much energy.

It's OK, but ask...: It is likely that the doctor simply wants monitor your child a little more closely to catch any concerning changes related to head circumference, a measure of head size. Given your child is showing no other abnormalities in behavior or physical findings, it sounds like appropriate monitoring. In the meantime, reach out to the doc to get a deeper understanding about this plan--you deserve to know.
