What doctor treats benign frontal osteoma?

Orthopedic

Bones
As this is a benign condition of the bone I would think an orthopedic surgeon may be the person; on the other hand it is located on the frontal bone and maybe a plastic surgeon should be consulted. Speak with your physician about the goals you have in mind and make a mutual decision about which would be best.

Depending on the location of the tumor, a CT guided or a MRI of the exact location of the lesion needs to be performed. With a guided approach, minimal damage to surrounding tissue (Nerves) can irradicate the tumor

I was told that burning of the Osteod osteoma with the lazer beam is better than surgical removal.The cyst would be burned &kept inside bones of ankle

Cyst

Regardless of the technique your surgeon uses to get to the cyst it still has to be debrided and content irrigated and aspirated with samples sent to pathology.

Do i need surgery? i have a 7mm osteoma in the midline left frontal sinus.There is an additional 8mm osteoma or benign hemangioma in the midline frontal calvarium. ave

Osteomas

Osteomas are benign, slowly growing, and rarely need surgery in general unless they are symptomatic (usually pain by expanding into sensitive lining tissue of the sinus) or creating functional obstruction by blocking the natural pathways that the frontal sinus drains into the nose. In your case this is probably not the case and it could easily be monitored by CT imaging at extended intervals.
