A 50-year-old African-American woman presented with a 1- to 2-year history of a slow-growing nodular lesion beneath the skin in the region of her right temple. She had no history of cutaneous malignancy and denied tenderness or any history of inflammation or trauma around the area. The lesion had never been excised.
Physical examination revealed a firm, 1×1-cm, freely mobile, superficial mass located 2 cm from the right supraorbital rim. There were no overlying skin changes or significant deformity. The right frontal nerve was fully functional. No skin lesions other than multiple seborrheic skin tags were noted.
