Q.

Which Specialist

Good Morning

My 7 year old son has an uneven head. The fell when he was a baby and I am only noticing now that his head is uneven and the eye with huge part is smaller. The teachers haven''t mentioned any problems, but he did have OT sessions last year.

Can I take him for a check up/scan to make sure that there isn''t any damage inside. I wouldn''t like to some tumour developing or a swelling.

Pls advise

Paediatrician

This is unusual and you are correct to be concerned about your son. It would be best to ask a paediatrician to see your son. The paediatrician will refer your son for any Xrays or scans if he/she thinks that this is necessary.
