Hi,
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these. Not the ovarian type of dermoid!
Dd who is 11 months has one on her forehead over her left eyebrow. We were sent to a neurosurgeon by our peds, and he says it's fine but needs to come out before she's 2 because in rare cases they can erode bone and attach to the brain. We're tentatively planning surgery for January.

I'm concerned that she has been extra fussy at night and I wonder if this is starting to hurt or bother her.

Hope someone out there has dealt with this!

Thanks!
