The bump likely represents scar tissue, a cyst, or foreign body. Scar revision can help fix all of these three issues through surgical excision of the area of scar tissue.

Removal of lump and scar on forehead

If the bump on your forehead is relatively soft and not hard like the bone, it should be able to be removed surgically.  The scar in the middle of your forehead could also be surgically excised.  It appears that the scar may also be depressed.  If this is the case, then a filler could also help to make it less noticeable.

First obtain a soft tissue scan to see if any foreign bodies like glass is present. Than ONLY excision scar revision will correct.
