Could be a wart

This could be a wart you should see a dermatologist to get it evaluated and a plastic surgeon to get it removed.

Growth on forehead

+1

It is impossible to tell you exactly what the growth is on your forehead without seeing you but it may be a type of wart.  I would recommend having it surgically removed and sent to a pathologist to determine exactly what it is.  Since you've had it for many years, I do not think that it is a cancer or anything bad, but it could be easily removed.
