Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is Lipoma.It is asy mptomatic fat containing swelling present in the skin. it is freely mobile and firm to touch.It can be left as such with no harm or can be removed by excision if cosmetically concerned.Visit your Doctor so that he can examine and advise you accordingly.You can share my opinion with him.I hope It helps.Take care.
