Dorje,

Treatment depends upon what is causing the lump. It could be an extososis, which is an overgrowth of bone. Or it could be an epidermal inclusion cyst, which can feel very hard.

You first have to get a diagnosis, before you can determine the proper treatment. Since it is bothering you, you should see your physician for an evaluation.

Good luck.

rini,

If you do not like the appearance of the mass, see a plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon can probably remove it (as long as it is not attached to something vital). But, you will trade the lump for a scar. Most of the time, the scar can be kept to a minimum.

So, if it is really affecting your life, see a plastic surgeon.

Good luck.

Hello Gaelic,

Can you tell me what causes the extra bone growth on the skull? and if i have a plastic surgery are there any chances of growing it again?
