No it's internal on my jaw line. I've had it for as long as I can remember. It's movable. Not increasing in size or causing any pain. Cyst??

Very nice.If there is no change in its size,shape and it is totally asymptomatic then such lumps are called are Lipoma.(fatty deposition). If it causes any interference, then you can get them surgically removed else not required. Please let me know for further query. Thanks. Take care.
