Lump on top of head (at soft spot) She Got Her Own 3 kids; Hodges, South Carolina 5813 posts

I have always noticed a small lump in my son's head at his soft spot but just thought it was the way his head was shaped. Recently it has gotten a little bit bigger than before so I mentioned it to our pedi. He felt of it and said it felt like his skull had already closed there and it should not have. He also mentioned that normally that condition is visible because it causes a lack of forehead but my DS definitely has a forehead. He is 2 and a half. He has referred us to a pediatric neurosurgeon to get a better evaluation and possibly tests to see what it is. The spot is very hard, like bone and right where his soft spot was. Has anyone else experienced this? I am starting to really stress about it and his apt with the neurologist isn't until the 25th. TIA
