Bone - what else: Not say where it is located. See an oral surgeon. It is not unusual to have a spontaneous growth of bone at a site. A surgeon may want to remove it and look at it under the microscope. I would not ignore it. ...Read more

It's: It's possible to fracture your tailbone with a fall. That could cause a bump or bulge, generally followed by a lot of bruising.

The picture you sent looks less like the kind of swelling you would get after trauma and more like an area of infection. Could you have broken the skin when you fell? Any chance this lump was there before your fall but that you didn't notice it until the fall?

Given the severity of your symptoms, you should definitely see a doctor. You may need x-rays or a ct scan of your pelvis. In addition, if the lump is infected, you may need a procedure called I&D to get rid it. ...Read more

Does it make sense to use shell of chicken, duck, quail egg we eat for calcium supplement? What about fish bones? What kind has the least lead?

Does it make sense to use shell of chicken, duck, quail egg we eat for calcium supplement? What about fish bones? What kind has the least lead?

Perhaps but...: One can prepare eggshells in a way that can be used as a calcium supplement- see http://mamanatural. Com/how-to-make-eggshell-calcium/
however, the type of calcium in eggshells, calcium carbonate, is relatively poorly absorbed. Also, studies show taking calcium supplements doubles risk of heart attacks! See http://bit. Ly/1ifyjcy
however, balancing with magnesium ; vit k makes it safer. See comment:. ...Read more

Doctor can check: A primary care doctor, dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or general surgeon can evaluate to see if this is a epidermal inclusion cyst or something else, such as a lipoma. A cyst might happen when a skin pore is blocked, and dead skin cells build up under the skin, forming a lump. Usually, one starts with a primary care doctor, who can refer to a specialist if needed, or if the lump looks worrisome. ...Read more

Could be anterior: Fontanelle you are referring to. Within the first two years the soft spots called fontanelles will be gone and the separate membranous bones will be linked by joints that look like stitches that are called sutures. Here's more info: http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002320.htm. Otherwise, if painful or bothersome, it's best to see your doctor for an in person examination. ...Read more

Usually is: Lymph nodes are located throughout the body & generally noticable in exposed areas like the neck. They are usually pea sized at rest and enlarged when stimulated by bug bites, dermatitis, drainage or infection. They rarely can become damaged by infection & grow to golf ball size & need drainage or removal. Most enlarge and later shrink back down within a 3 wk cycle unless chronically stimulated. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination, however, it does not appear to be a serious issue and you may wait to consult your doctor next time you see her/him. If the "lump" doubles in size, bleeds or ulcerates, see a doctor immediately.

Always worth a look: At 16, it would be extremely rare to have a "bad" mass like a cancer, but there can be things like sebaceous cysts, small abscesses, ingrown hairs, lipomas, and foreign body granulomas....So if it becomes painful or larger, gets reddish, or changes color, or if you have the time while you're off this summer from school, I would recommend that you have your family physician or dermatologist see it. ...Read more

Probable ganglion: Based on your description and the location of the lump, you probably have a ganglion cyst, however this diagnosis can only be made after a physical exam.
