A brain tumor cannot cause a lump on the outside of the head. Wait and see what the dermatologist advises you.

A lump on the forehead is likely to be a sebaceous cyst and a dermatologist is appropriate doctor to see. It is not feasible to comment on your concern about a brain tumor, without examining you. Wish you good health!
