Customer Question

I have a hard small knot that just formed on the top of my orbital bone (middle of eye brow). It is not skin related as I can push the skin up on my eyebrow and it still hurts on the bone. It's definitely stationary. It's painful - feels like a bruise but I haven't injured myself
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Not touching it .. 3 days
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Opthamologist should know?
Customer: I'm 41 yo female
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Opthamologist about your situation and then connect you two.

This is Dr. David

it could be a bone spur or a bone cyst on the orbital ridge

you should see an eye doctor or primary care doctor

they can do an ultrasound of the bone there to see if it is a bone spur or a bone cyst which has formed.

if it continues to bother you, you may need surgery to remove the bone cyst.

do you have a primary care doctor you can see about this?
