Hello and hope you are doing well.

Bony projections on the forehead could sometimes be osteomas. Like your doctor suggested, its more likely the bony projection may not be growth and could be an asymmetry. This can be corrected by plastic surgery. You can discuss this with your doctor who may refer you to a plastic surgeon.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
