Natural skull: Common complaint. I have had many patients that for some reason like a head ache or hair problem start to palpate their scalp and skull. Some patients become alarmed because they feel the irregular grooves, asymmetries and bumps on their skull and think something is wrong. If it continues to bother you go see a doctor.
