How Can Craniofacial Microsomia On The Face Be Treated?

I have a craniofacisl birth defect on the left side of my face. I am being followed by the drs at buy medical center. Lately I ve noticed a depression that is like a large thumb print pushed into my skull on the back side of my skull and and a line from it that feels like a crack in my skull it. Others me. It is on the left back side near my ear. I don t know if it s important to tell my drs or see someone here, sooner rather than later. I ve had it for over a year and it s getting worse. I live 3 hours from Nguyen medical center. What do you think I should do?
