Customer Question

Hello, I went and had an x ray done yesterday. Basically I have this really weird dent on my forehead. There have been times when it's been sensitive to touch and also times where my head just ends up hurting. Nothing too unusual, and not to the point where it's an every day ordeal! However, my drs office is saying it might be 2-3 days before I hear anything! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The excessive sensitivity can be due to the nerve irritation related at the area.

Did you receive any injury at the concerned area?

Denting can be seen normally in most cases without any injury.

In some cases, there can be bone loss or lesion mostly benign--Xrays will detect that well.

However any nerve related problem will not be seen in xrays.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
