For the past 2 years, I had noticed a small growth under my skin on my forehead (on the left side above my eyebrow), but recently, everyone has been noticing it and it's becoming larger. It doesn't hurt and when i touch it, it doesn't feel hard. Does anyone know what this would be?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
A painless growth under the skin of forehead is in all probability a lipoma. As advised by others, it needs removal for cosmetic purposes only. However if it is growing in size, it is better to remove it. Also the other possibility is a neurofibroma. Hence ask for a biopsy of the removed lump.
Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
