Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

A detailed examination of the lump is required, whether it is hard or soft, mobile or immobile,pusatile or not, fixed to skin or continuity with bone, reducible or not, x ray is needed, if planning for surgery, then biopsy will done before surgery... hence do not neglect the lump, consult a surgeon....
