Forehead Reduction - Hard solid lump on left side forhead does not move and does not hurt feels like bone I have had this eversince childhood when I questioned parents as to how It got there they was not sure but said it could be as a result of head trauma as a child I would like to know if this could be removed or shaved down. I can provide CT scan images and report. Kind regards

This sounds like an osteoma - a hard lump of bone, often found on the forehead. It could be from trauma but often the cause is not clear. If it's close enough to the hairline, an incision can be made within the hair to conceal a scar, and the bone can be shaved down from that hidden incision. Go to to find a doctor near you.
