Would you take your child to the doctor for this..

My son has a  growth  on his head, and has seen the doctor for it when it was small. She said if it grew or caused pain to bring him back in, because it will need to be looked and probably removed. Well its gotten bigger this week, and is hurting him and causing pressure, so I am going to take him back, dont get me wrong, he is going to the doctor!

Here is the thing, my mom is being a little crazy. She has watched Youtube videos of people opening and removing cysts from their heads and thinks SHE can do it in her living room! We dont even know if its a cyst!!

WHen I told her this morning that it had grown and we needed to go back, she got mad, and told me that I was taking him for no reason and wasting money, and to let her do it, WHICH IS NOT HAPPENING by the way!

I was just wondering, what do you ladies think, am I crazy?  I just dont think something that is big around as his daddy's thumb needs to be opened and removed at home! 

I included a pic, not sure if its visable, but its about quarter sized and spreading and very tight, causing ALOT of pressure!

I think my mother has lost her mind!!!

Take the kid to the dr. She said to come back if any changes and obviously there has been.

Well, I use YouTube tutorials for hair stuff and makeup but I draw the line at medical procedures. I would take my child to see a doctor, listen to what they have to say, and make a decision together with THEM, not with granny.

your mom is wrong and he needs to see a doctor.  I would not hesitate to bring my child to the doctor.
