Thanks for your query.

If it hasn't gotten any bigger for a while already you probably have nothing to worry about and most probably it is a sebaceous cyst, which can be surgically removed or another treatment strategy would be watchful waiting, because many sebaceous cysts are harmless and need no treatment until they cause any symptoms.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
