Recently I have noticed that I have what seems like three big bumps on the top of my head. They feel like the kind of bumps you get after hitting your head really hard. However, I have not hit my head anytime recently. I am just wondering if you can tell me what these may be, and if they are serious or not. At this point, they are just annoying, but they also hurt when I comb my hair. I have also noticed that I have been losing hair in these specific areas. Is it possible that these bumps are causing hair loss as well? Thanks.
The most common bumps on the head (besides from bumping) are pilar cysts. They are benign, though annoying, and pretty easy to remove. But they don't cause hair loss. I can't think of any bumps that do, off the top of my head. (Sorry.)
Doesn't sound serious, but maybe you should have a doc look at them next visit.
