Little swelling on chest

It's weird to say but it's been years that I have a small rigid swelling on my chest over sternum and I discovered it after I trimmed my chest hair .. It's very itchy and firm in consistency on palpation . I feel like putting a knife over it and throw it out.. Small yet very irritating pimple like thing... Please suggest anything

Greetings. These are mostly keloids. Kindly send in pictures on private follow up chat for confirmation of the diagnosis. The standard treatment of keloids includes intra lesional injections and silicone gel application/ silicone cream application. The lesions will slowly flatten but may not get cured completely with any treatment. Fractional laser therapy is another option. Kindly see a dermatologist near you and discuss the same with him. Warm regards
