7 y.O. Has faint bruise on shin with firm lump beneath (hurts when pressed). If he hit it that hard, should bruise be more obvious? Cause for concern?

Watch the area for a few days and if it does not go down then have him see your pediatrician. Most bruises resolve. ...Read more
My baby is 2weeks old. I noticed a round lump or nodes like in her tummy below the chest above the tummy.. is it usually serious?
Difficult to guess: It's difficult to guess what the round lump in your 2 week old baby's tummy might be without being able to examine her. I'm assuming she has no other symptoms. While it may be that she has a ventral hernia, only her pediatrician would really be able to diagnose it. She should have a 2 week exam, and at that visit her doctor can give you more information about whether it's serious or not. ...Read more

My hasband had a plastic anemia and now has green indents on his skin now a golf ball size lump inside his chest and 2under his ribs?
Really needs exam: With a history of aplastic anemia (aa), he really needs to be seen by a physician now. How long ago did he have aa? Is your husband taking immunosuppressive meds, or is he off all meds for his aa? Did he require a bone marrow transplant for his aa? Does he still have a relationship with his hematologist/oncologist? The symptoms you describe might not be related to his aa, but he needs to find out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
