Normal 10 Mo Misshapen Head
NT scan shows 3.3 mm thickness, normal blood tests. 1 white spot at baby's heart. Nasal bone present. Everything else is fine. Does my baby had DS?
Can't say...: Those tests are not diagnostic of anything. An increased thickness has been associated with Downs Syndrome, so the risk is thought to be increased BUT IT DOES NOT IN ANY WAY SAY YOUR BABY HAS DOWNS. The echogenic cardiac focus is also very nonspecific and usually means nothing at all. Follow with your doc for the revised "odds". If you want certainty consider amnio (only after understanding risks) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I m concerned for baby head growth. She is 18 days old.Born with 37 CM head circumference today 40 cm.is that normal.
Large head: 40 cm at 18 days is large. IF there is no bulging of the fontanelle, the difference may be due to molding durign the delivery. Was this a large baby? Is there a family history of large heads. If there is any concern, speak to your pediatrician andi f necessary have an ultrasound done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3 mo old w/ 1x2.5cm Anterior font and ridge in forehead, round head. Neonatologist carefully examined, measure, said not 2 worry. Is it normal?
Yes, but: Anytime a parent has concerns about head size/shape, it deserves close monitoring because things change very rapidly at this age. The exam and measurements should occur monthly until all sutures have closed on the skull, usually 9-12 months of age. The ridge is likely the normal closure of the skull bones occurring, but needs to be monitored so it does not happen too soon. ...Read more
Plate skull, 12 yrs feel like electricity in head under plate. Infrequent Stopped sometime by tilting head Concerned? Tests? dr say reg nrv poss
Capacitor: discharge triggered by traction /compression of nerve. Tilting the head relieves the force that triggers the discharge. The problem can be in the neck, skull base or subcutaneous scalp. Not likely a brain issue (no nerve endings) If you can live with it and its not getting worse, then be patient. It may resolve on its own as the regenerating nerve matures. ...Read more

I have 10 palpable lymph nodes (8 in H&N). Blood results normal. Asymptomatic. First one appeared 7 years ago, #10 1 week ago. No infection atm.
Healthy Immunity: I am shocked that no physician has calmed you down and explained that you are normal; your situation represents a healthy immune system and that you should ABSOLUTELY not be worrying about this. Our immune systems keep us from getting sick every single day. It is always fighting off bacteria, parasites, viruses and other foreign material. If one is thing they can often feel their active nodes. ...Read more

The cough and vomiting may be related to an ear infection, although it is difficult to know for sure without examining him. ...Read more
