Cause for nodule on the bridge of the nose between the eyebrows of a child?

My 8 year grandaughter with autism (sometimes w/o clear verbage)was born with a nodule on the bridge of her nose between her eyebrows and in the recent months has become a behavior problem. No doctor has wanted to deal with this bump but I am beignnign to think it is pressing on the front lobe of her brain. Her hand wss scanned and she has the body of a ten year old, pubic hair and hair under her arm. Her mom has thyroid cancer but had thyroid removed but still has a piece on her larynax. So I developed more of a concern

Hi... The swelling you are Quoting that is present on the bridge of the nose could be a dermoid or a dermoid cyst. This has got nothing to do with her autism or it pressing over the frontal lobe of the brain is also a far fetched idea. If such a tumor is pressing on the frontal lobe there would have been other dangerous signs like continuous vomiting, high blood pressure, serious and severe behavioural disturbances. You need not worry about this.
