Hi geai,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
It can be a lipoma, a neurofibroma or a saphena varix, an enlarged lymph node.
You can understand so many resembling problems are there.
It would be very helpful for me if you could put a follow up query to me with front and side photos of the lump. You can get examined by a physician of your locality as well.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
