Thanks for the query.

You are probably suffering from a condition called as lipoma.
It is a progressive condition where subcutaneous nodules are formed.

It feels hard but infact is a dense collection of fat.

You dont need to worry much, it is not a XXXXXXX condition and slowly it will regress.

It can be removed surgically, but better to leave it, as it is.
Surgical removal can cause scarring.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you
