What causes a small lump under the skin of quadracep muscles?

I have a small lump under the skin perhaps on my quad muscle. It doesn t hurt and is small and I have only just noticed it accidentally too. It is round and quite hard and I feel that I should ask what it could be as it is a bit of a strange discovery considering its size and location. I sort of stumbled across it. Many thanks.

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, such swelling could be due to lipoma chances of it is very likely still better to keep the condition under observation, for any changes and in case of increasing in size it need to be clinically examined, hope this information helps, take care, have a nice day.
