Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

I have studied your case.

As per your history it looks swelling of soft tissue which can be lipoma or sebaceous cyst.
I will advise to consult surgeon for clinical examination and if required proper investigation.
I will advise you to do MRI and Ultrasound of the swelling.
Benign swelling giving rise to pain can be excised.
