Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
This can be a skin cyst.
Commonly, it is a sebaceous cyst.
As it is moving it is not arising from bone.
Other possibility is a lipoma or fibroma.
These are benign conditions.
However, I would suggest to get an examination by doctor to confirm it.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
