Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.

You seem to have develop lipoma or sebaceous cyst or keloid.
It is better to get it checked and get the nature of the lump determined.
A fine needle aspiration biopsy may be needed.

A visit to dermatologist will help to confirm diagnosis and allow prescription medications and surgery if needed.

Take care.
