My baby has a hard bump on the back right side of his head. I've read that this could be a bulging fontanelle, which worries me. Should I be concerned?

My baby has a hard bump on the back right side of his head. I've read that this could be a bulging fontanelle, which worries me. Should I be concerned?

Bruising?: The anterior and posterior fontanelle are both midline, so if the bulge is posterior and right sided, the likely cause is some form of scalp bruising, most likely cephalhematoma, if a hard bump.

How effective are lower back surgeries for for bulging disc n are there any side effects. Does it limit u from doing certain things?

I am noticing some bluish veins on the side of my forehead beginning to show. Nothing bulging, but they were not there until after a brief illness.
