Cyst-like bump on my stomach. What could it be ?

I ve had this hard cyst-like bump on my stomach (lower left rib area) ever since I could remember. Its about half to 3/4 of the size of a pencil eraser and oval shaped. It is almost flesh colored as it is only a shade or two darker than my skin . I felt a hair growing out of it and noticed that there was a brownish-black spot on it. It doesn t hurt or itch. The bump itself isn t that fair raised above my skin. When I tug at my skin, it moves with it. What could it be? A cyst? A mole? Can a cyst have black spots on it?

Thanks for query,
As you have lump in the rib area and there is hair growing.
It seems that you are having Demoid Cyst.
Consult surgeon and seek his advice.
Ok and bye.
