My son got hit in the head, and there is a really tiny bump on it. Do I call his doctor 's office. Note, he says it hurts if he touches it or if he lifts his eyebrows.

You have to insist the doctor do something. Don't leave his room until he orders more tests.
Either that or change doctors. Your son needs you to stand up for him and get things checked out.
You have a good night, My Sunday has started already so I should get organized for my family day.

My middle son fell over on the basketball courts and had a huge lump on the back of his head. The school sent him home but he was fine. He even told me that he damaged the courts!
I would be more concerned over him getting the headaches though. It's not normal for a child to be getting headaches all the time.

Not for a little bump. Keep an eye on him though and if he starts to look dazed then take him. In the meantime just keep ice on it to keep the swelling down.

Thank you Gena. I will. I am wide awake now. My son said the bump went down some. I'm happy for that. He's only 12 and thinks he has the upperhand to everything. He went to the park by himself. He told me. "Mom I will be careful, I just want more privileges". Stupid me agreed. 45 minutes later he comes in the door while I'm cleaning the bathroom he says"Mom I need ice." I looked at his head and said "Why'd you go?!". Thanks anyways.

Yeah it seems unusual. I always try to get the chance to tell the doctor when my son comes in his office. I try to adress the idea but he usually gets on with the check up and that's it. I dislike his doctor a lot. Very ignorant. Well it's late. I'm going to be keeping an eye on him til I fall asleep. Thank you again Michelle. Goodnight.

Thank you Michelle, he seems tired but it seems normal. It's pretty late. Besides that point, he said he has this headache. He gets them every few days. I am concerned about that part. He hasn't been dazing off though which is an answer to my prayers. It's happened before to him. Although it happened on his forehead. The size of a golfball. Ever since the headaches now live within him. He had had a small concussion. Not too too scary. Thanks so much. And I will keep the cold compress on his head. I really think he'lbe fine
