this past summer i noticed a little ridge/bump on my toddler's forehead -- about an inch and a half down from his hairline, over his eye. i waited it out until the end of summer, when we again had insurance, thinking it was a bump from falling/growing. it began about a half inch long, one mm wide. it is now one and a half inches long, and feels like a boney ridge.
his doc really didn't address my concern when i brought him at first, thinking it could be an old fracture from a bump that was growing with his head growing, or something i didn't notice before. so i wait another month, and go back. we went back, bringing my other son who was getting a referral to an ent, so she also just referred my toddler to the ent, too. i was really annoyed -- this doesn't seem like the correct doc for him. and we went. the ent said that he was not alarmed, but if i wanted to persue it, my toddler would need an mri or a cat scan, in which he would be put under general or sedated. he wouldn't give me his medical opinion, but rather, left to "my choice".
so i called back my family doc. at this point, i want a bone doc or neuro-surgeon to look at him, if only to give an opinion at what the heck this could be. i am really growing concerned. it now has been six/seven months.
any one have any experience/input?
