Head: You are likely describing what is called an osteoma, an extra growth of bone that can be firm and raised - lack of pain is key as those that are painful or those that are rapidly growing need to be examined further. ...Read more

Skin condition: Very hard to say and you did not mention where it is located. If at the back of the head - base of the head at the neck - it may be a lymph node. If it gets larger or more painful, see a physician. ...Read more

Many possibilities.: It could be a benign epidermal cyst, or any number of other benign skin tumors. A dermatologist will probably be able to tell you what it is, just by looking at it. ...Read more

Painful bump: The painless bump is likely a lymph node, or less likely maybe a cyst. The new painful bump is likely a "reactive" lymph node (recent viral infection or even an infection you were unaware of?). A new painful bump could also be from an infected hair shaft or abscess in which case look for redness. Have your physician check them out to be sure. ...Read more

At what age does my baby's skull completely close? She is 6mo and staring to move around an bump her head on more things, so I am concerned.

See below: The posterior fontanel closes first, at latest by the age of 8 weeks in a full-term baby. The anterior fontanel closes at 18 months of age on the average but it can close normally as early as 9 months. If fontanels close too early or too late, that may be a sign of a problem. The "fontanel" is a "soft spot" of the skull. ...Read more
