it has grown slightly and is more noticeable over the years
my doctor isnt worried and thinks it just a cosmetic problem but im not convinced and im very upset about it
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.
