Hello.In view of details I agree with your doctor that it can be a lipoma, that is fat containing tumor.Bluish discoloration can be due to overlying blood vessels.Commonly the diagnosis is made by having look at it .Clinical diagnosis is quiet accurate, so you can go by your doctors opinion.A sonography of lesion can help to confirm this.Hope that answers your question.Thank you.
