A Soft Lump On The Head Of A Newborn?
, I want to ask my child is only 10 days old. To be precise yesterday I felt something strange in his head like the lump was not too big and when touched, it felt soft. Is it dangerous?
A soft lump on the baby's head needs to be known where it is because it can be a palpable crown, or caused by other conditions. In addition, pay attention to the presence or absence of other symptoms that arise in your baby such as the baby becoming more fussy, refusing to breastfeed, vomiting, fever and others where if this occurs it is necessary to immediately take it to the pediatrician for treatment.
Lumps on the head can arise due to several possible causes, such as a hematoma or a collection of blood outside the blood vessels, which can arise as a result of childbirth or known as a head, bump or shock on the baby's head, a prominent crown, or other causes. For this reason, it is necessary to directly examine the doctor to determine the cause and assess whether treatment is necessary or not.
