Toby presented with a firm mass on his skull. This was biopsied and was thought to be an osteoma, a benign bone tumour. We carefully burred around it and removed it with a narrow margin of normal skull.
He wore a cone for 3 weeks to protect the wound from being bashed as much as anything. Avoiding penetrating trauma over the skull defect long term was advised but it would take major bad luck for any sharp object to “bullseye” the weak spot.
