    Hello Dawna,

    What reason/cause did your doctor give you for your son's rapid head growth?

    If s/he didn't give a reason, please ask him/her for a specific diagnosis. Also, ask what s/he recommends to correct the problem.

    Often, if there is no specific diagnosis, watchful waiting is the answer to see if your son's body growth will begin to catch up with his head growth.

    Best of Health,
