Hi,

I think it can be a cyst. You have to consult a doctor first. If it is soft, then this can be a cyst. It has to be removed surgically. If it is hard, it can be a benign tumour. Ultrasound will help to differentiate.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Khushboo Priya
