This is Dr. David
this mall hard lump could be from a blocked skin pore or a subaceous cyst or from an ingrown hair follicle.
at your age, cancer would be unlikely
do you have a GP doctor you can show this hard lump ?
would you like to upload a clear jpg image of the lump from a computer so I can better help you. ?
here are instructions.
type a word in the textbox and highlight it
then select the "chain" icon above the textbox or the paper clip icon to upload a jpg
this opens a window where you can click next to the text box to select the jpg or pdf file on your computer to upload into JustAnswer

does the cyst just go away?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
subaceous cyst don't go away on their own.
they can stay there for a long time.
if they bother you, you can have a surgeon remove them.
if they are squeezed really hard, subaceous waxy substance can be squeezed out of them.
but they can come back again.
let me know if you have other questions.

most likely a small skin blocked pore or an ingrown hair follicle which corrected itself.
