Bald spot scar on the back of the head , was born with it....had it all my life Hello, I was born with a scar on the back of my head...I was told when I was a baby it looked as if my head was split....It s 3Dish, meaning, you can feel it and it pops up... It is also a bald spot as well, hair grows around it, but not on it....Is there a name for it? and How much would it be to cut the tissue and flatten it? I can provide a picture if you would like?

Hello, I am a healthy 46 year old white male. I am balding on top and usually clip my hair very short with an electric clipper. Today I noticed a dark spot on my scalp in the back of my head. It is about the size of a penny and roundish in shape. It is not painful or itchy, and is flat. I thought at first it could be a shadow of an area of darker hair but I am worried it could be something else. Do you have any idea what this may be and should I go to my doctor immediately? Thank you.

In November of 2009 I Found a bump on the back of my head which I thought to be a boil. In December I had received a Hair cut and noticed There were 3 bald spots were I thought to be 3 boiils. The bald spots did not seem normal so I went to health services. I was able to see a Doctor a little more than a month later. The main spot had grown in size and had been draining puss and other fluid as well as blood. The doctor had taken a culture to test for MRSA. He had drained it and reported it looked like cottage cheese comming out. I was placed on a anti-biotic called Sulfa-meth tri-meth, for ten days. The MRSA test came back as negative and I was told that It came backs as coagulis negative staphaloccus. In march of 2010 I had 2 drains placed in the back of my head for proximetly 24 hours. It was then deemed I should need surgery to remove any mass that had been built up under the skin. By this time the spot was huge draining everyday but never getting smaller. I had surgery and underwent a general anesthesia. I was placed in an infirmary for 7 weeks where they were to do a wet to dry healing for the surgery. The wound never officially healed it is now October and coming upon one year from when the problem first started. I constanly have small bumps fill with fluid and puss around the region of the wound and when pressed upon or sometimes when I do not press them even it drains Blood and sometimes a snotty red mass that comes out of the surgery wound area. I do not have Insurance and I tried to clean it with peroxide on a daily basis but This does not seem to help either. I have had a MRSA test as recently as Aug. 2010 and the results were negative. My left lymph node seems to have been swollen since about April 2010 and has never gone down. I am confused and flustered about what this may be any information would be greatly appreciated. I do have photos i have taken from when I have cleaned it and photos of my head shaved to get a good view of whats going on back there. Please take a look at this it would be greatly appreciated thank you for your time. Steven Fuchs.
