Can you attach the photos here? Pain or itch? How big is it? Can you move it with fingers easily? Is it hard or soft?

Yes, this is normal.

Everyone has some asymmetry.

Clearly this will not show up on a photo.

To make sure , just have your doctor feel this, but these protruberances, one on each side, are normal.
