Thanks for the query.

Since the swelling is long standing for more than 6 years, less likely its malignant. It could be a long standing sebaceous cyst which can also present like your findings.

To be on a safer side get an FNAC done for histopathology.

It its benign treatment would be surgical excision.

Hope this helps.
