parietal calcified cephalohematoma

Hello My 5 month old son has parietal calcified cephalohematoma and we have been advised to show his condition to a specialist. As it is on the top right side of his head as parents we are naturally worried.

Would appreciate any advise or help on how safe is the operation / removal and side effects in later life.

We have been told that the operation is purely cosmetic and there is no danger.

Thank you

worried parents
