Thanks for the question.

Can you please provide more details about this lump?
Is it painful?
How is overlying skin?Can you pinch overlying skin separate from it?
How does it feel to consistency when pressed?
Are there any other lumps anywhere else?

Mostly commonly such incidentally noted asymptomatic lumps are harmless lipomas, that is focal fatty tissue collection.

Awaiting reply.
