Thanks for writing to us.
From the description given I could think of few possibilities. If it is an outgrowth of skin, it could be a skin tag or a giant acrochordon or a papilloma. If its underneath skin, it could be an enlarged lymph node, inguinal hernia, sebaceous cyst, lipoma or an abscess.
I would advise that you XXXXXXX a surgeon to get these possibilities ruled out. Also if you could upload an image of the lesion, I would be in a better position to assist.

Hope that helped.
Wish you good health.
