Brief Answer:
Commonest cause is lipoma

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your partial feedback.
Please give details as asked above about motility, pain, tenderness and so on.
Does it increase on coughing or straining?

If the lump is not painful, not tender to touch, freely XXXXXXX as if slipping easily under the finger then this is most probably due to lipoma.

This can be easily diagnosed by a clinical examination and high resolution ultrasonography to confirm the diagnosis so that an appropriate management can be done as and if needed.
Possibility of a sebaceous cyst, hernia should also be kept in mind.

I hope this answer helps you.
Your detailed feedback can help me to assist you better.
