It seems that you are offline. So I am writing you an initial answer. You may ask follow up questions after reading this.

The lump is likely to be lipoma or lipofibroma which is non cancerous (constitie of fat tissue and fibrous tissue). If this increases in size or become suddenly painful or tender; it may need a surgical removal. Otherwise no treatment is required.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
