This is Dr. David
it could be a ganglion cyst
or a sebaceous cyst.
these are benign cysts on the skin.
they can be removed surgically if the lump bothers you, but if it doesn't bother you, you can just leave it alone.
Ok thank you, it is not on my skin as such but under - it moves from side to side when pressed (or at least it feels like it)
yes, these cysts can be under the skin as well.
ok, if it was anything worse it would burt or I would probably feel it more?
if it was worse, it would hurt and it would get larger over the years.
but since it has stayed there about the same size, then it is most likely not worrisome.
does this help?
do you have other questions?
