My 2.5 year old boy has a hard bump the size of a dime on the back of his head. It's hard but i can move around slightly when touched. I made a doc appt but has anyone seen this? Is there cause for concern?

could be a cyst which is completely benign and more of a nuisance than anything most times. i have always been told that if you can move it around then its probably nothing. i think making a doc appt was the right way to go but i dont think i would be too anxious yet :)

Scalp-type cysts are very common... Usually oil build up in a follicle. Personally, I had two of these removed last year. No big deal. I recommend a dermatologist.
