Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic. Thank you for your query.
It is most commonly some benign subcutaneous lesion such as lipoma, fibroma or ateroma. Also it can be swollen lymph node due to infection, thyroid tumor or ectopic thyroid tissue, tymoma. Some other lesions are rare but more serious. Ct scan will reveal the exact diagnosis.
Wish you good health. Regards
