Customer Question
i was jumped over a...
i was jumped over a year ago and I have this bump on my head that has grown to be the size of life saver but thicker and has leaked blood and puss from it. I also have noticed another one that is smaller like this one was at first. I was told on one occasion that it was a stress bump. But if that were true then why the drainage and why are there others coming up by it.

Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. You need to have your doctor look at it. There is no such thing as a "stress bump." If it leaks blood and pus then it is infected and needs a culture of the fluid to determine what bacteria are causing it. Only then can you cure it with the proper antibiotic prescription.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
