How long does a bump stay on the head?

It depends on what is causing the bump. My sister had a bump on the top of her head that was there for more than 10 years. Every time she was pregnant the increase in hormones would cause the bump to grow bigger. Every doctor she saw for the bump told her that it would go away. Well, as I stated before, it didn't. Finally after 10 years and a bump the size of a golf ball she found a doctor who would help her. We took her to the hospital where they did surgery to remove the bump and test it for cancer, etc. Come to find out, she had an ingrown hair. That hair was as long as the rest of her hair which was way down past her waist. We were very fortunate that it was nothing more. I recommend that you see a doctor to have the lump evaluated. And keep track of the bump...if it grows, changes color, etc. That is valuable information to getting the right treatment.

It's common and it's similar to 'water on the knee.' When the body becomes dehydrated, particularly hot or the person is standing for a long length of time this can cause 'water on the knee.' In the case of the bump on your head you have something similar, but, anything to do with the head should be checked out by a specialist to be sure there is no other injuries to the head. Please don't assume this is like water on the knee and do nothing about it. Any bump or lump should be checked out by your doctor and generally everything is just fine and it will put your mind to rest.

I like 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for an hour, stop for an hour or so and start again. YOu can keep up the 10/10 process pretty much indefinately. Do this as long as the bump hurts or you'd like it to get smaller.Ice should only be applied until inflammation has been reduced to a reasonable size.
