Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Is it hard or a soft lump?
Since how long you have noticed this lump?
Thanks for the information
Is it inside the hair or you can attach a picture of it?
Thanks for the details
Considering its semi soft appearance and its location it seems like a sebaceous cyst
Usually it is a benign problem
Sometime it can get infected giving rise to pain and worsening of swelling
You can just have it examined by your GP when you visit him but nothing serious in it
The effective way to get rid of it if you want will be a surgical excision

Usually a cyst is diagnosed on examination but if the details are to be seen an ultrasound and a CT scan can be helpful
Yes the procedure of excision is done under local anesthesia and it is very safe
Please do let me know if you have any other question
