Forehead lipoma

Forehead lipomas typically are moveable, while osteomas are fixed in position.  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.

Lump on head

Without an exam it is difficult to say what the lump is. Sometimes they are small osteophytes(bone) and sometimes they are traumatic lipomas. WIthout removal or evaluation it is impossible to say.
