Hello
Thanks for your question.
This sounds like a fat cyst or a sebaceous cyst.
This is a benign condition.
usually it will not bother, but sometimes may get inflamed causing pin and discomfort.
You can watch it for a while, will usually go away over time.
But if it does not, you can get it removed by a surgeon, a simple outpatient procedure.
Best wishes,

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

How can I be sure it's not cancer, and what causes the cyst?

 

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 5 years ago.
This is not cancer as the location is not a common site for cancer. Besides, cancer looks different like fungating growth or an ulcer and does not happen in 2 days.
Cyst is caused by the clogging of the skin gland and also the accumulation of fibrous tissue and fat tissue.
This is benign.
