Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Swelling in that area could be most commonly due to lymphnodes , next causes are lipoma ,Sebaceous cyst etc

Since it is on right side so no need to worry too much. These conditions needs clinical examination for diagnosis.


I would suggest you to consult your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and for further management like excision if needed.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help . .

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil
