Anyone else have a child with a lumpy head?

Ds is 8. When he was 3 I noticed that on the crown of his head there is a lump. It's hard like a bone. Flew to the drs in a panic and was told it was where his bones have fused together at the top. Said it may disappear as head grows. It hasn't i don't think but he says sometimes that the area is tender to touch. Was satisfied at the time that it is just the shape of his head but now begining to worry that it could be something else? Is this common? Trying not to google.

Simplemind, you have taken your DS to the doctor who has seen him and told you that it's nothing to worry about. So leave it at that, relax and put your mind at rest. I know how you must feel as I'm exactly the same, but don't let this anxiety spoil your

I took my 6 yr old to the GP a few years ago when I felt a lumpy area on his head. The gp also said it was just the way his bones had fused and people have all sorts of bumps on their heads. Also recently my sister showed me a lump at the back of my 3 yr old nieces head. I panicked s I do get quite anxious about health and made her go to the doctor as it really felt like a big protrusion. Doctor said it was fine, nothing to worry about.
