Had a concussion two years ago. Got in a car last night, the ride was bumpy. hit my head a few times on hard part of seat. Should I worry about it?
Not likely: unless you hit your head pretty hard, it's unlikely. questions to ask yourself: did you experience loss of consciousness? dizziness? visual changes? nausea? altered mental status? confusion? sleepiness? if you had no symptoms, and still don't, concussion recurrence from car ride unlikely. ...Read more
My 1 year old baby fell and hit his head, and he has a 1 inch diameter bump on the back of head. What should I do?
Head injury: If no loss of conciousness, laceration of the scalp and normally oriented after being consoled , there is no special treatment needed. He can be allowed to eat and nap normally. If he naps longer than normal, awaken him gently and observe for normal interaction. Danger signs would include repetitive vomiting, decreased level of conciousness and dramatic soft swelling at the point of impact. ...Read more

Hi, my 18 month old son banged his shin a few days ago. He has an average sized bruise on it and a lump underneath. Should I get this checked?
Bruise with hematoma: The shin area is a very common location for a toddler to have a bruise from a fall. Sometimes, a small vein near the area of injury is injured as well causing a small hematoma or "lump." It should gradually get smaller over the course of a few weeks to months, but should no longer be painful after about 1 week. It should not affect his walking. If other symptoms develop, he should see his doc. ...Read more

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?
A couple things: These can be a type of mole called melanotic macules or early skin growths of seborrheic keratoses. These are completely benign & tend to happen more in some people versus others. There is a small possibility that these could be early flat warts. Seborrheic keratoses & warts would become more raised over time. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure they aren't warts. ...Read more

My 14 year old hit his head on the arm of our couch it wasn't hard but since then he get a headache after a shower on left side above ear?
It happens: Even relatively minor trauma can bring on a migraine equivalent headache within the next 24 hrs or longer. As long as the kid responds to rest/sleep I would not consider it worrisome. They can even throw up once. Repeated vomiting or a change in personality would be a worrisome sign and need evaluation. ...Read more
Reactive lymphnode: There are around 3 or less occipital lymph nodes found at the back of the head.They take in lymph fluid to purify it of harmful cells or particles. The lymph that passes through them is the one that has gone around the scalp. Since this is a tiny pealike, rubbery and mobile lump and your toddler is doing well-it will spontaneously resolve over a few weeks. Large, red, tender ones need a check! ...Read more
