What could a swollen oblong bump 2/3 inches below arm pit be

Customer Question

what could a swollen oblong bump 2/3 inches below arm pit be ? I noticed it approximately 5/ 6 days ago & it disappeared but back today. Seems to have meaty tissue beneath. I do not think it is a boil or pimple as there is no puss but is warm to touch.

It could be a lipoma. A fatty growth that is.Do you have a picture?
