2.Osteoma of Skull and Facial Bones
An osteoma is a benign (non-cancerous) outgrowth of bone, usually in the skull and facial bones. They are slow growing and usually cause no symptoms. Osteomas are noticed once they begin causing problems with breathing, vision, or hearing.
Prognosis is good, as this is not cancer. Surgical excision is successful for most people.
