General Surgeon 's  Response
hi.

based from your description, it could possibly be a cyst (sebaceous or keratinous type), a fibroma (fibrous tissue formation) or a lipoma (a fatty tissue deposit). it is best if you consult with a doctor, preferably a general surgeon, for clinical evaluation. management (medical and/or surgical) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
