Hello!

What size is this spot or lump?

It is soft to press? How long has it been present ? It might be a lipoma which is a benign fatty growth under the skin ...

It might be a sebaceous cyst ...

A picture posted to this page may be helpful ( this without exam may not be diagnostic however )

If it seems just under the skin then you may benefit to consult a dermatologist ( they could do procedure to remove a sebaceous cyst or lipoma )

Other possibilities exist ...

If not a skin related or subcutaneous lesion then you may be referred to an ENT specialist ....

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,

it's soft to the touch
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 10 months ago.

Ok then a lipoma is soft but not usually tender ....

A sebaceous cyst more likely to be tender to press on it ...

I think seeing a dermatologist to check and possibly you may be able to get it treated with brief in office procedure ...

I hope that this is helpful

Let me know if you have anything further

Best regards,

Ok I see ...have your ENT check the site then since you must be seeing this specialist for the sinus issue ...

A careful exam of this area is next step for you ....

Let me know if you have further concerns or discussion...
