Brief Answer:
probably cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

From the description it appears to be a sebaceous cyst. These things contain creamy fluid which comes out if pressed. Fortunately these are not serious.

If it gets infected it will need course of antibiotics and probably surgical removal. Till then it can be observed or even removed if it bothers you.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further follow up queries, if any.
