Frontal Bone Osteoma
Cranioplasty: Any bone of the face can be removed and replaced in a different position. If a cranioplasty is being done then it sounds like a bone prominence (e.g. Fibrous dysplasia) is being removed and the defect repaired with a cranioplasty procedure. This last can be done with bone from somewhere else on the head or with foreign materials of which there is a long list. ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more

I have a intraosseous hemangioma of the frontal bone showing as a small lump but no pain, i was wondering if it's ok to leave it? will it keep growing
1 yr before i got an accident and frontal bone surgery was done. Now on my scalp uncontrollable dandruff is forming post surgery. Advice to stop this?
Dandruff: Neutrogena shampoo. Showers with tepid or cool water. Minimize frequency of washing (water dries up skin). Try antihistamine (benadryl, zyrtec (cetirizine)...)sometimes we use steroid lotions. Just make sure is dandruff and nothing else (see doctor if condition does not improve). ...Read more
What do my mri results mean; chronic microvas ischemic changes noted, frontal bone lesion & slightly abnormally shaped & low lying cerebellar tonsil.
Hard to say: urs best to discuss this with a neurology doctor, who can get full history. Picture by itself is just a picture-need medical hx and exam. So far it may look that there are changes- probably due to long history of smoking or other vascular disease .... As far as the shape of the brain parts and frontal lesion- it's impossible to tell without more info ...Read more
What would cause a tingling sensation in the head which stretches from behind the ear moves to the parietal almost to the frontal bone? Also dizziness
35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?
Further testing: If you have been having an MRI every 6 months, it's possible this hyperintensity showed up before, but was not reported. Sometimes small versions of this are missed during other tests. Having another MRI in the future should be an adequate method to study this. If you have another MRI 6 months from now, that should be helpful enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Orthopedic: 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. ...Read more
Several solutions: These tumors have been reported to shrink on their own with no surgical intervention over several years. The standard treatment for osteoid osteoma is surgically cutting out of the entire tumor, particularly the central core, for a good outcome. Ct-guided radiofrequency removal of the nidus has been successfully used with few recurrences and little complication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Benign brain lesions: These are benign. In other words , not malignant lesions and do not require treatment unless you have significant symptoms. Ossified means there is some bony part to it or it has solidified / no longer fluid. ...Read more
My husband 41 years has a swollen sack inside the bone of the ankle.In report they called it osteod osteoma .Explain please I am so desperate...
Benign but painful: Ostoid osteoma is a benign(non cancerous) tumor of the bone. It has a specific look on mri, ct scans and bone scans. It is a small area of increased vascularity that classically hurts more at night and is relieved by taking Aspirin like compounds. Its natural is history is that it will eventually go away on its own with 5-7 years .It can be removed surgically or with focused radiofrequency ablati. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How could i know that the surgical removal of the osteod osteoma inside the bone of the ankle will not affect badly the tissues& nerves around.Help me?
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.
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. ...Read more
Most osteomas: are incidentally discovered on imaging, are asymptomatic, and require no treatment. Occasionally they are located in a position that might obstruct sinus drainage and thereby cause symptoms. Talk to your doc about whether this finding could potentially be symptomatic, or, more likely, is not significant, in your case. ...Read more
What is the best treatment for osteod osteoma since it is in critical place inside the bone of ankle& maybcause damage to bones and nerves around it?
I have an osteoma on my first Left rib. Its grown since I had a work physical, CT proved it to be bone. Can osteomas be cancerous? I'm 32 and healthy.
Unusual: Get a 2nd radiologist's input. Osteoid osteomas are fairly common in ribs but true osteomas less so. I'd get a couple of physicians' thoughts. At age 31, a primary rib cancer pretending to one-or-another of the lesions that a radiologist would tell you is an "osteoma" would be exceptional -- but bone tumors can do the unexpected. ...Read more
