See below: It depends on what kind of abnormal head shape. If there is some mild flattening by lying on back, or in one position all the time, then there is probably no affect on the brain. If the abnormality is formed by the skull sutures fusing, so restricting the space inside the skull, then yes the brain can be hurt.

Denting head ?: hello~ your question is not well crafted but I assume you mean pressure to the EXTERIOR of the skull. If so, external pressure can only change the shape of the skull if it is applied BEFORE the sutures in the pediatric skull have fused and by and large that means before 2 years of age. Anterior fontanelle is closed by about 18 months and the sutures fuse then too, so roughly by 2 years of age thx ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

30 week ultrasound showed asymmetrical brain ventricles on fetus. Rest of the scan perfect. Is this a normal variant?
Not really.: No, this is not a normal variant and is usually indicative of some type of compromise and blood flow, to the side of the brain where the ventricle is more prominent. The good news, is that a fetus's brain is very resilient, and as long as all else goes well from here on in, the baby can develop normally. ...Read more
.4mm uniform symmetrical blue mole (I think) on face. The skin around it looks lighter than my normal skin. Does this sound normal?
Likely benign: As a general rule, lesions that are uniform in color, stable in size and uniform in shape are USUALLY benign. Skin cancers tend to be irregular in size, shape and color and may grow noticeably. However, if you are concerned about a lesion, especially on your face, see a dermatologist and consider biopsy/excision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could my child have craniosynostosis if her head shape is normal but in the 10th percentile for circumference and a tiny soft spot?
Ultrasound at 19 weeks shows asymmetry on the head,but grey matter n ventricles normal, with no midline shift,what could this mean. ?
Very difficult : To say. This may be a neutral finding and not have any consequences. Still this can be followed with ultrasound to see if anything progress. Even then if there is little change in its appearance developmental milestones will need to be met by the child. No easy answers ...Read more
