Your sex, age, medical history, medications, etc would help narrow down the list of possibilities (which we refer to as the differential diagnosis). For instance, simple cyst, sebaceous cyst, acne vulgaris w/nodular-cystic lesions, lipoma, bone cyst, abscess, folliculitis, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell cancer, etc can all cause a big lump on one's forehead. Good luck!
