Okay I am ready; I am posting my answer here;

At the outset I want to inform you and also reassure you that this type of indention occurring on the forehead area is not suspicious for anything serious in nature

If there is any concern for serious conditions such as tumors etc then please see this is certainly not suspicious for any tumors or for that matter this is not suspicious for any serious illnesses

There are no other associated significant symptoms, and also this appeared somewhat suddenly and this rules out any possibility of serious issues such as tumors, infections, or any other bone or brain pathologies

This type of sudden onset finding generally resolves rapidly too, so this is most likely going to resolve in the very near future.

If this persists then please try to get this examined by your dr in the clinic and then your dr can decide whether any investigations etc will be required for the further evaluation of this indention

But it certainly appears something benign, and not indicative of any types of disease processes, and also expected to resolve very soon, so please not to be scared.

Wishing you the best health!

All the very best!

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss this further.

Assuring you the best services!

Best Regards!

Kindly reply

Best Regards!
