I have a smaller triangler mole or freckle on my face, it's lighter and even in color. Does this sound cancerous?
I'd urge you not to: If you use a freckle remover, even from a dermatologist, you risk disfiguring yourself. Freckles are endearing, they're distinctively you, and a majority of your friends probably like them. Ask them. If you want them less prominent, avoid excess sunlight -- wise in any case. ...Read more

Laser, peels: If your doctor determines that your brown spots are indeed benign freckling, and if appropriate, she/he may suggest various laser/light technology such as ipl, fraxel, or active fx to resurface and remove the freckling.

Change your hairstyle: It's common for people your age to feel physically abnormal in some way. I'm sure your face is just the right size. And there's no way to make it smaller. But you can make it LOOK smaller by changing the way you wear your hair. Very short hair makes your face look bigger, while longer hair brought around your face will make it look smaller. Wearing glasses can make your face look smaller too. ...Read more

Laser?: A dermatologist can confirm whether this is a pigmented lesion that's worrisome and requires something special (i.e., a lentigo maligna), or whether it can be lasered off (don't expect complete success). If it's not a cancer risk, it's your choice to try removal or leave it alone -- the decision is personal. ...Read more
I have microcephaley but my head CM 52cm what is the age range. Ie how small/ big to child please ?
Don't understand ???: Not sure how you were diagnosed with "microcephaly" at 33 yrs of age. 52 cm is smaller than "average", but still falls within 2 standard deviations of average (which means it's essentially normal). You also have to correlate it with your adult height to figure out where you fall on the percentile curves. If this doesn't help please try and rephrase your question a little more clearly. ...Read more

Very common: I see this a great deal, specially in patients prone to headaches and migraine. Just above the top of the angle between your head and neck is the occipital plexus, which is were migraines really originate from. Tenderness in the region is rarely serious and common, may also be indicative of arthritis high in your neck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 3years old fell 5 months ago bumped the back of her head leaving her a big knot the knot still there and she bumped again yesterday she say hurt?
Not to worry: It is common for toddlers & young children to be a bit clumsy, and bump themselves often, even on the head. Bruises on the scalp often cause a large knot ("goose-egg") because of the rich blood supply there, and this will be tender and can take a few weeks to heal. As long as she doesn't seem dazed, extremely sleepy, vomiting or sudden behavior changes, repeated bumps on the head should heal fine. ...Read more
See doctor: If it is painful or bothersome to you, then consider having it examined by your doctor. A dermatologist vs surgeon would be able to remove it, depending on the exact location. If you're not sure it's a cyst, an ultrasound will help with figuring it out. Best wishes. ...Read more
