calcium deposits on my head(exterior scull)

Posted by mmv on December 29, 2000 at 01:15:56:

I have three bumps on my head, after an xray & catscan, my doctor informed me that they are calcium deposits. I was told that they are harmless. My problem is that they are growing in size & sometimes very sensitive. The only treatment suggested was to bang them down... How safe is this. what other treatment is suggested? they are now noticible, I must style my hair to hide them. When the are sensitive they hurt. any suggestions??? 1-bump is hairless, 1-bump has normal straight hair and 1-bump has hard corse kinky hair growing from it.

Hi, mmv.

If your docs have been told what you have written here, and they have no better recommendations, you need better docs.

No "calcifications" would cause the hair changes you are describing. Get copies of ALL of your records to take to your new doc.

If you can find a good Naturopath (glossary), she might be able to tell you how to prevent a recurrance once these have been chisled off.

Let us know what you find out.

Thank you for responding to my questions. I am looking for a new doctor to bring my records to. (anyone you would refer in the NY, Suffolk, Long Island area?) Would you have any guesses on what would cause these bumps, them to enlarge or why hair changes have occured? also, how easy is it to get all of my records? I have been informed it would cost me $ .75/page (copies only) and $50 for my x-ray. I have been with this hip hmo for over 10 years and already paid them over 10 years worth of premiums. Why would I have to pay for MY RECORDS? Any help on the above, is greatly appreciated! mmv

mmv, I do not know the laws in New York , but I feel they Basically are the same in most states. Did you not pay for the x-rays once already? Tell them you want the records and x-rays and quit being bluffed. They belong to you.Good luck

Hi, mmv.

Consider this the price for finally learning of the avarice & greed of your doctor. Better learn it now than at the operating table. These are YOUR records and the doc only holds them in trust! Any decent doctor provides these copies free!

You have already paid for the xrays and it is illegal for the xray department to charge you for copies.

You have recourse to report both of these bullies to the local county medical society OR, if they are not responsive, to the state medical board or the state medical society. Finally, a letter to the editor of your local newspaper will embarass them enough that they will do the right thing. They ought to be ashamed! They only do this to bully people who don't know any better.

Many times a letter to them, on your lawyer's letterhead, advising then what you are going to do to insist on your rights is all that you need to do.

The best way to find a decent doc in your area is to call (800) 843-9660 and ask them for a list of docs in your area who have subscribed to their service for at least 2 years.

Good luck and don't let the b-----ds get you down!

Namaste`

Walt

Hi, mmv.

It is ALWAYS better to get your records in YOUR hands and hand carry them to your new doc. Keep your own copies and let him copy what he wants.

Walt
