due to high cholestrol there can be such problems.. i usually suggest my clients to apply ice for 7 to 8 minutes which will deprive it from blood supply and then a new wbc will come and reduce the size of the lump. along with ice you must keeping pressing the lump from all sides as many times as possible. this will break the lump slowly. before trying all these please make sure its not malignant, then results will come soon, and its slow process you have to give time and control your cholestrol to avoid further development
