My 12 year old son discovered a lump at the back of his head last night (under the skin, round, quite hard, doesn’t move easily, worrying me sick…). The receptionist at the doctor’s just informed me that I could have got him in this morning, if I hadn’t already taken him to school as he felt okay…I was hoping not to alarm him and to get him an appointment for after school…my plan failed. I can’t get him in the doctors until tomorrow morning now, when I have to phone them to make an ’emergency appointment’. He has been having headaches and told me this morning as we left for school, that he had a v. bad headache and felt sick and dizzy all day at school yesterday.
Of course, it could be nothing serious, but lumps on heads cause me considerable concern. I wish I hadn’t taken him to school now, but he was smiley and happy and seemed okay…and I did stupidly think i could get him an appointment for this afternoon.
Please throw a prayer up to heaven, if you can spare one. And if you have any experience of lumps on heads, (not as in ‘bumps’ that have arisen from kids clashing heads together, my son hasn’t banged his head)…then please leave a comment.
