Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is a painless lump and attached to the bone.
So, this is likely a extra bone growth like exostosis.
Bone cyst is also possible.
Both are benign condition usually.
Cartilage cyst is another common cause also benign.
You can get it checked by your doctor also.
But this is not concerning.
