My scoliosis curve in thoracic area isnt a transitioning curve but 2 of the circular bones look almost diagonal to each other causes?

Impossible to say...: It is impossible to comment without actually being able to look at the x-rays.

I'm 39 & I've noticed a change in the Shape of my skull. The flat area @ my crown is a deeper dent & I have a ridge behind both ears? Causes/concerns?

I'm 39 & I've noticed a change in the Shape of my skull. The flat area @ my crown is a deeper dent & I have a ridge behind both ears? Causes/concerns?

A further indentation at the crown area would indicate possibly some new bone growth. There are some disorders in which this occurs but they are not usually selective to just the skull. Paget's is one. See your MD and be checked. ...Read more
