Lymph node: There are thousands of lymph node located around the body that help screen out germs in the body serum before it returns to the circulation. There are many in the neck, head, behind the ear. At rest these are often 1/4 inch in diameter and may grow to marble sized when reacting to a stimulus. Bug bites, or viral infections can increase their size. They should shrink down to nl size over a few wks. ...Read more

My 5 year old has lumps on the lower part of his head and complaints he can't bend his head to his chest?

Needs to be seen: I would be concerned that the lumps are lymph nodes. If he can not bend his head to his chest, then meningitis is a possibly. While there are other concerns, meningitis is the most serious and should be investigated as soon as possible. ...Read more

My 15 year grandson was playing around when he fell on his back. Now, he has a soft lump in the middle of his head he is a healthy teennage boy?

Perhaps a hematoma?: When falling on the backside, it is quite reasonable for the head to snap back and hit as well. If just the right blow occurred to his head, this could trigger a slow bleeding beneath the scalp--called a cephalohematoma. These are rarely dangerous; however, occasionally these occur secondary to a linear skull fracture. Did your grandson lose consciousness? If this area is tender, see your doctor. ...Read more

Lymph node: There are many lymph nodes in the neck and back of the head that are often more noticeable because they are located where our fat pads don't hide them. If you feel around you should find several the size of a pea & sometimes bigger. They can increase to the size of a big peanut if stimulated by local factors, illness or vaccines. I would just monitor it. ...Read more

My 1 year old has a small lump above the neck in the head area.?

Look for nits: Lice {common in schools today) cause swelling of occipital lymph nodes (back of neck). But this can also be due to a small sore on the scalp. Nits are small rounded flakes that stick to individual hairs and are the lice eggs. Look for them, they can be combed out with a fine tooth comb. ...Read more

My one year old fell and hit his head now he has a huge lump and its dark purple should I be concerned?

My one year old fell and hit his head now he has a huge lump and its dark purple should I be concerned?

Hmmm: If he/she fell from a height (a chair, table etc.) then you should see the doc just to be sure. Most falls while standing, walking or running do not cause severe injuries unless the child lands on something very hard or pointed. Lacerations need stitches of course, but bruises/lumps heal fine. If the child starts vomiting go to er. If the child acts very tired or lethargic/sleepy go to the er. ...Read more

I found a pea sized lump on the back my 1 year olds head. I can roll it a little like a cyst. It feels superficial to me, but should I be worried?

Probably lymph node: If there are no other symptoms, probably no need to be worried. Has there been a scratch or rash on the child's head or neck? Often these lumps turn out to be enlarged lymph nodes, part of the immune system. However, there is always a small chance they could be a sign of something more serious, so have your doctor take a look if it does not go away in a week or two. ...Read more

Last year I felt from a mororbike hitting my head on the right, a few months later I get dizzy if I turn to the left what can it be, also lump abreast?

Garbled: Sorry, but your post is very difficult to understand. It appears that you are making three separate statements: 1) Mororbike, 2) get dizzy, and 3) lump abreast your breast; each of which is unrelated to the other two. However, to be certain, you should repost your question with assistance from a native speaker of English. ...Read more

Don't worry: First, you need to see a healthcare provider for your headaches. Second, take a deep breath and relax. Cancer is very unlikely as the cause of your symptoms, including the small lump on your head! It's much more likely you have sinus disease, migraine headaches or chronic tension headaches. Write down when they occur, what makes them better or worse, and other symptoms. This will help your doctor! ...Read more
