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

We discovered a beige-y, painless, irregularly-shaped bump on my husband's skull. He's had this for a few months and hasn't necessarily gotten bigger?

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

?? Close ??: The soft spots are quite variable & may grow larger before becoming smaller & are seldom distinct after 9-12 mo.The skull itself is composed by about 17 separate growth centers that seemingly push away from each other until the kid reaches 9-10 yrs when the adult skull size is reached.Kids seldom do any damage to the skull by their simple movements. A trauma that knocks them out is worth an eval. ...Read more
