Lump near my hairline on the back of my neck. What could this be?

lump near my hairline on the back of my neck for 3 months Hi - I have a lump near my hairline on the back of my neck for 3 months now. It was initially an ingrown hair or boil that went away. now it is just a lump the size of a pea that i can move around. It does not hurt much unless I rub it a good bit. My wife squeezed it out once a few weeks ago and tells me it was white substance. What could this be?
