This is likely to be;

1) Sebaceous cyst.

2) Dermoid cyst.

Both of these are benign. But would need a surgical excision.

There is a tiny possibility of it being basal cell carcinoma which is a skin cancer. This is a locally invasive cancer as it does not spread and remain localized. A physical exam and biopsy will rule it out.
