Description

The patient is a 41-year-old woman who was bothered by a firm bump on her forehead, slowly growing over 10-11 years. Dr. Fishman treated her with excision of what turned out to be an osteoma, or a benign bony growth. The removal was performed in the office, with the help of injectable numbing medicine and laughing gas. The patient’s scar is hidden behind her hairline, so as to avoid visible facial scars. She is shown 5 months after treatment.
