Bumps on the Head
Childhood bumps on the head are one of the most common injuries for kids. And, like every parent, it’s hard to know when to worry about that head bump, and when you should take your child to an expert pediatric urgent care clinic like Pacific Crest.
Bumps on the head happen in all kinds of ways. Your child might fall a lot, run into things, or like to roughhouse with their sibling. Thankfully, most head bumps end up being nothing to worry about but separating the serious ones from the not so serious ones can be tricky.
