Hi, probably it's also a benign lump from your description. What I feel, as it's growing in size, you should get it excised and look at the pathology. I assume, the lipoma removed was also examined by pathologist to rule out cancer. If it was not, then it's must to look at the pathology of this new lump. Take care.
