Hello, The lump needs to be examined, as there are many causes for lumps, like cyst (fluid filled sac), if infected becomes painful, lipoma (benign growth of fatty tissue), neurofibroma (growth of supporting cells of nerves), management varies. Good surgeon can differentiate them by clinical examination. Please consult a general surgeon.
