Skull Shape

My friend has this issue wherein he finds his skull a bit abnormal, it protrudes out from the hind region and also the back of his head pains often, he also has a lump or a boil kinda thing in his head since more than 10 months, he is scared of referring a doc about this and says he's okay. Is this normal or should i get him checked up? Thank you Practo.

Hello,,, your friend need to be examined, to know what's the actual problem is,, and we need to know whether the defect is birth (bony) or due to some swellings in the skin or soft tissue of scalp. If the swelling is from soft tissue if scalp. Then no need to worry, it can be treated medically or surgically. So don't worry, convince your friend to see a doctor and consult a general physician.(or general surgeon).
