Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
A massage will not help with that. However, if you don't want an incision there, it can be taken out via liposuction.
And yes, the procedure can be done under local anesthesia as an office procedure at a Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon's practice.

hello Dr Uzair
That's great news. Thanks for your help.
It was a pleasure.
Are you in the UK? could you suggest some practices?
No, I am not in the UK. I am in another continent altogether. :)
Sorry about that.
This is not something that requires a lot of expertise on behalf of the plastic surgeon.
No worries, just struggling to find a place. You say it could also be removed surgically?
So, you can pretty much go to any plastic surgeon who is "well to do" in your area.
But if you use lipo to remove the fat, won't i be getting a break or hole in that spot? since it was removed?
Well, if it is soft and fatty, it can be removed easily with liposuction, however, if there is some fibrosis in there which will apparent on physical examination of the lump by the surgeon, a small incision can be made and it can be taken out surgically.
and a plastic surgeon can check that as well, i suppose
No holes with liposuction, just a 0.2 to 0.3 cm puncture which is used to introduce the canula in order to suck the fat out, this puncture heals without leaving a visible scar.
Yes, plastic surgeons are a very intelligent and well trained breed of Surgeons.
Ok, great to get a second opinion. I'll get checking on prices now. I have never been up that attic again!Thanks for your help, i'll be rating you high.
They are required to train in General Surgery before they become plastic surgeons, so yes, a plastic surgeon can most definitely check anything that a General Surgeon can and quite meticulously as well, if I might add.
Have a nice day!
Be well and best of luck!
