From Birth There Is A Lump On The Head?
I want to ask, my brother-in-law has a child and has a lump on his head. Then the doctor checked it was okay and he was not given any medicine. Even so, the lump is very annoying because it is quite large in size. Is there a safe treatment to get rid of the lump?
Hello Kencana Ayu,
Lumps on the head have many causes, it must first be ascertained whether the origin of the lump is from the skin, fat, bone, hair follicles, connective tissue and others before determining the appropriate treatment for the lump.
A lump on the head can be caused by:
Head injury, leading to hematoma (rupture of blood vessels in the skin) Lipoma, lumps originating from fatty tissue Folliculitis, inflammation of hair follicles Cysts, lumps filled with fluid Calcification of bones Other tumors
We recommend that your brother-in-law check with the surgeon directly so that the surgeon can determine the cause and determine the right treatment. Additional examinations may be needed, such as a CT scan or biopsy. The lump will not necessarily be operated on, but will be given consideration based on the disease, symptoms experienced and so on.
Hopefully this is useful,
