Thanks for posting your query.
A large lump on the top of the head at 38 years of age is not likely to be due to a forceps delivery. This is more likely to be due to a soft tissue swelling or a bony swelling which can be diagnosed only after a direct examination and investigations like CT scan.
Sometimes it is due to the shape of the skull bones itself which can be diagnosed after further investigations.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
