An osteoma is a benign, bony growth that can appear anywhere on the skull. They are quite common in people aged 20 to 40 and will generally pop up as a hard growth somewhere between the brow and the hairline. While they are harmless and shouldn’t cause pain or affect the surrounding skin, the obvious bumps can impact self-confidence and lead to cosmetic concerns.
Many people accept osteomas, hiding them under a fringe or hat to avoid questions. What they don’t realize is that osteoma removal is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that can get rid of your bump with little to no scarring.
Endoscopic osteoma removal involves a surgeon creating a small incision before using a tiny camera and specialized surgical tools to shave away the bony growth. Depending on the growth location, some surgeons may even use a hairline incision to further reduce any visible scarring.
