I have a small lump on left backside of neck. Near the ear feels like a bruise but didn't hit head, and top of scalp very tiny bumps. And a stiff neck?

See your doctor: If you truly have a stiff neck--cannot touch your chin to your chest or move head from side to side, you must be seen urgently by your doctor or emergency room--if you have fever this becomes more urgent. If you have any scalp problems this may cause tiny bumps or if you pull your hair tight as some do for braids, this may be related. See your physician. ...Read more

Growing?: Hard to say without examining you. Possibilities include fatty tumors(benign), cysts, abscesses? Calcified lesions? Cancer is very rare but not impossible. If it has not changed over many years it is probably benign (not cancer). If it is growing rapidly you should have it seen asap. The "hard" part worries me. See your md. A biopsy will tell you for sure. ...Read more

My 7 week old scooted off the side of our bed. She has a small knot on her head, should I take her to the er? She is showing no sign of anything wrong. Actions and reactions are perfectly normal. And she stopped crying almost instantly when i picked her u

Yes. Have her seen.: It's so easy to have a baby roll over or scoot off a bed or changing table. The facts that she is acting normally and cried right away - stopping with being picked up, are all reassuring. But i'd advise you to have your seven-week-old evaluated in the er just in case.

I hit my head on a gate latch while bending over to pick something up. It got a small knot which is now squishy. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: If you did not pass out, do not have severe headaches and feel normal as far as mood then it is probably just some bruising under the scalp. It should resolve in a week or so. If you did lose consciousness or if you are having severe headaches, visual changes or mood changes see a doctor right away. ...Read more

I have a swollen knot above the middle of my right eyebrow.Hit my head hard there 9mnths ago..It's small, but ugly. Advice?

Have it checked out: When you hit your head, you may have had bleeding there. If it formed a blood clot, it can leave a residual knot on the surface of the skull which you feel as the small knot. Hard to say whether it will eventually flatten out or not. There are also other things it could be. Have it checked out by a surgeon. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: A knot or lump in the scalp or back of the head may be a lymph node or a skin cyst, among other possibilities. A primary care doctor can evaluate, and refer to an ENT or dermatology specialist if needed. It's very hard to guess exactly what it might be, without the whole story and an exam. ...Read more

My 26yr old fiance` pulled a tick off his head, it was there for possibly 4-5days. He found it & pulled it off sun. Am. Says its sore, has small knot?

Tick bites: This depends on the tick. There are many different species. Very few ticks carry disease, and those that do may carry different pathogens. If your fiance becomes symptomatic in any way besides what you have described, he should go and see a doctor and tell him what has happened. In your area the major issues are not lyme, but anaplasma and other similar organisms. ...Read more
