I hit my head 3 yrs ago, it formed a bump on my forehead, made of bone (right side). Can this be removed by a surgeon? (photos)

Forehead Bump after Trauma
Bump on forehead after trauma
Forehead osteomas and lipomas represent a common benign lesion found on the forehead. When visible, it can be distressing to the patient. While there are a variety of methods to remove these lesions, endoscopic approach with a single incision is the best. I utilize a small incision with specialized instruments specific for osteoma removal of the forehead, which allows me to perform this procedure comfortably in an in-office setting. Many patients can return to work in days rather than weeks with an incision conveniently hidden in the scalp.

Trauma causing forehead bump
There might have been a trauma to the forehead which caused the bony covering, periosteoum to create swelling and excessive bone. It can be corrected by either shaving or drilling or filling it down.
Results are typically really good on long term basis.
