Egg shaped lump on the back. No pain. What is it?

I am a massage therapist and noticed a smooth, egg-shaped and egg sized lump on a patient s back. It was not tender and was freely movable but with fairly defined edges. She had no idea it was there. I casually mentioned it andmavoidedmthe area but I want to be sure she checks it out as I m concerned. It may only be a benign cyst but, any ideas of what to tell her?
