Lump on forehead. No pain. How can I get rid of this?

Hi I have this lump on the right side of my forehead , I noticed it about about 1 year ago and it is still there. Somedays it looks big and noticeable and somedays it looks small and unnoticeable. It feels just like the other side of my head it doesn t hurt at all. My question is how can I get rid of it even if its nothing to worry about because I feel sensitive about it and I want it gone, also what is it?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Based on the description of symptoms, it could possibly be a Lipoma which is nothing but fatty mass. This is generally harmless and will not produce any symptoms.

If the lump is considerably large, it requires surgical excision. Smaller lesions may be injected with steroid injections which may reduce the size but will not completely eradicate it .

Consult a General surgeon for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
