❓Guest Question: Cushing’s in 15 year old male

Jess asks on the Message Boards:

Hello, – a little back story. I have a 15 year old son who over the past couple of years has gained 60 pounds and has increasingly become angry, depressed, anxious- to the point where he was having thoughts of suicide. We went to a behavioral health specialist who put him on anti-anxiety meds, but his aggression has become worse and worse. I literally found myself last week saying, never in my life would I think this kid would act so violently towards me or his siblings. He was a good, sensitive kid. His mood can change in the blink of an eye. He also is very withdrawn and anxious to the point where he now does online school. We have contributed all of this to puberty and life experiences, just typical teenage stuff… but last week, when i was able to actaully have him come out of his room… i noticed a “lump” on the top of back, base of the neck. I am not sure if a buffalo hump can be caused by playing video games and sitting in a computer chair for 18 hours a day? Or if this is considered a buffalo hump??
