hi. it needs further evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for the query.
probably this is not cancer since it occured suddenly and tumor are located more deeply and have oval shape. It is more probable subcutaneous benign lesion such as lipoma,fibroma or this subcutaneous infection.
however, you should visit doctor and do ultrasound and needle biopsy if necessary because you should rule out more serious diagnoses at this age. Wish you good health.feel free to ask. Regards
