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 ?

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

The nerves at the back of my head slightly hurt. Its just alittle not big. I dont know if i need a massage or its something serious? i get worried alo

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 more

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?

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
