Bulging Soft Spot
Does bulge soft spot in 10 mths a sign for hydrocephalus due to IV hemorrhage. No other symptoms. Neurologist wants to wait for next appt in 3 weeks?
Hydrocephalus: Sounds scary. An ultrasound can be done. Has the head circumference increased more than usual? Is the soft spot compressible? Perhaps it would be wise to check with your pediatrician to see if an appointment before that time would be beneficial. I imagine the neurologist may want to see unusual growth of head circumference prior to referring to a pediatric neurosurgeon for shunt placement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Acute pain in calf muscle at a specific spot. I can feel a slight bulge when I touch the spot. The condition exists from several years.
May be injured: This sounds like an old injury to the calf muscle which may have resulted in adhesions (scarring) as part of healing. A new growth must also be ruled out. A diagnostic ultrasound can be ordered, but an MRI would be more useful. It needs to be examined. See a podiatrist, foot/ankle specialist or orthopedist. ...Read more
9-hour flight. Ankle was noticeably swollen. Looks much better after 2 days. Now thigh has bulging spot. Mild aching. No redness or warmth. Doctor?
Deep vein thrombosis: This definitely needs evaluation, because what you describe is consistent with a 'DVT' or deep vein thrombosis. Since you were sitting still for 9 hours, the blood in your legs wasn't circulating well- and that means you could have formed a clot in the leg that is swollen. A doctor can do a quick ultrasound to determine if that's true. Then, you may well need treatment depending on the findings. ...Read more
Why do the vein on the back of my left hand (near knuckle of middle finger)bulge in only one small spot? It happens on and off. No pain. Is it worrisome?

As long as the vein does not stay distended should not worry. However if red, tender and firm get checked. ...Read more

Not much information: I presume these were disc bulges noted on a lumbar or cervical MRI. It's not uncommon for disc bulges to be noted on MRI studies. It depends on the size and location whether these are significant lesions. In most cases, this finding is normal or at least common for your age group but must be considered in conjunction with your symptoms and exam findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
