Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not point to any serious problem.

The most likely causes in your case could be either a lipoma (benign tumour of adipose or fatty tissue), OR a sebaceous cyst (a fluid collection underneath the skin).

Both these conditions are harmless and are benign (not cancer).

If they are not causing any symptoms such as pain, they can be left as it is. However, keep a watch on the size.

If the size increases or if it becomes painful, please show to a doctor.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
