Hello!

How long has it been there ?

It sounds that it may be a Lipoma as one possibility...that is a being fatty growth...it would be soft and nontender....

If it is fluid it may be a cyst that has developed...

Have your doctor or dermatologist examine it ...

It is not urgent ....a routine scheduled appointment would be fine for what you describe

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,
