Brief Answer: . Detailed Answer: If its under the skin, rounded, painless sebaceus cyst is the most possible diagnosis. If its attached to the skin, protruding, fibroma is most probable. The only reason to concern is when this lump is darker than the skin, like a mole, should be checked by dermatologist. Hope this will help. Regards.
