I’ve been meaning to write about this since yesterday but I feel so stressed about it that I can’t think of the right words to type. Hays!
The other night, while we were playing with Ayex who refuse to sleep, I checked my head out of nowhere. I noticed that the little something in my head got bigger. I told Mon to check it as well and he confirmed that it is bigger than before. Ok, I didn’t know what it was until I went to a derma yesterday. It’s been there since when I don’t remember. It used to be small and when I remember it’s there, I check if its size is changing. Ok, I sometimes try to prick it with my finger nails. The derma said it’s a cyst.
The derma said I probably had a pimple in my head before that I was not aware of. The pimple probably burst inside my scalp. My scalp created this cyst to prevent the contents of the pimple from spreading somewhere else that may cause infection etc. I don’t completely understand it. All I know now it that I have a benign cyst (as per the surgeon I saw today) in my head.
Although it is benign, the derma said it can be removed through surgery. The surgeon shall make a little incision in my head to remove the cyst. Both surgeon and derma talked about 3-4 stitches. The surgeon told me that it would be bloodier than usual because its in my head as it normally shows up in the arms. The surgeon further said that my hair would be shaved to sterile the area. The whole thing, the picture of it just freaks me out! The little lump is not causing me any pain but it does bother me that it was bigger than before.
Mon told me that we should see another doctor. I think so too. But what if they say the same thing?
