Welcome to Healthcare Magic
I have not heard of any swelling called Grease ball. Probably he is referring to Lipoma or a benign collection of fat. Unless it disturbs you in daily activities or is unsightly, no need to to anything about it. Lipoma tends to recur sometimes. You could be having similar swellings in other parts of your body. The only solution is Surgery.
