My son is 13 and hit his head hard against a wall playing basketball. Is this serious as he has no symptoms and only has a lump that hurts when touch.

Keep watch x24 hours: Fortunately the brain fits more solidly inside the skull of a 13 y/o comparing to a 73 etc... So often bumping head against hard surface causes a big bruise/bump which will resolve. Since he has no other symptom, he should be ok. But, I would keep an eye on him--if has increasing headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness over next 24 hrs, contact doc asap. Otherwise, he should do well. Good luck. ...Read more

If you feel around you should find several the size of a pea ; sometimes bigger. They can increase to the size of a big peanut if stimulated by local factors, illness or vaccines. I would just monitor it or have doc see it during regular visit. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. Doc can diagnose and if that's the case, remove it. Peace and good health. ...Read more

What could the lump on my temple that comes and goes be?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Have a lump (looks like a bug bite) on my face near my sideburn/temple area. Doesn't hurt or itch but I'm curious as to what it is. Thanks

Bumps are papules: No one can diagnose a lesion with so little information. However, if the bump, or papule, has only been there a little while, you can just wait and see if it goes away. This time of year, it could well be a bite, or it could be an early pimple and may get painful after time. Show it to your parent and see a doctor if it becomes symptomatic or stays a long time. Could be a cyst; hair follicle.... ...Read more
