Question: I do have a cyst on my forehead. The size is small and it's been there for 2.5/3 years. It's stopped growing now. There is no pain at all. A hard muscle (rubber like stuff) can be felt on touching it.
Is it prone to cancer/any other complication in any way in future.

Brief Answer:
unlikely to turn to cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

This appears to be a benign cyst. It has stopped growing also. It is very unlikely to progress to cancer.

For more reassurance you can see a physician but probably he will also opine same.

Hope this helps.
