Head injury left hard lump above eye

About 6 years I had an accident at home and suffered a head injury just over my right eye. I didn't know what to do and did not go to the doctor for several days. Xrays did not show a fracture. However, the swelling above my eye has never gone down and has left an ugly bump, which I assume is calcified bone, above my eye, and the area between my eye and eyebrow is still very puffy, making it look swollen all the time. This not only makes me look disfigured, but if I rub the bump, it is still a bit painful. I developed constant sinus problems since the accident and have wierd headaches that seem to originate from the lump and cross my head like in a straight line. Could a plastic surgeon remove this bump?  I would appreciate any advice on what to do.
