Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

With this descriptions it seems to be a sebaceous cyst ,which is nothing but a nodular lesions with in the skin and at times it gets calcified to form a stone like mass.
Nape of neck is the most common place to have it.
This would require a small surgery to get it removed .There is nothing be scared of as it is a very benign condition.
What it contains is nothing but sebum.
The other possibility is of LIPOMA,which is nothing but a fat lobule with in a bag.
This too can be excised and removed surgically.
Kindly show to a dermatologist for confirmation.
