How Can I Get Rid Of This Lump On The Side Of My Head?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have this one face on that shows the issue with a bump on my right side.

Ill take better ones this weekend but from the sides and back it looks fine, seems to just be in certain lighting.that my head shape looks really weird. Could be the camera too, don’t really notice it in mirrors.

Unfortunately my hair is too far gone and have to have a shaved head, insecure about it.

A: Thank you for sending your pictures. I believe you are referring to a right temporal protrusion seen above the right ear. (see attached picture) That area of excess muscle mass could be reduced from an incision in the crease of the back of the ear.
