Just feels slightly raised that’s all
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Are you still there?

Thanks for the details

It seems more like a cyst

Other possibility could be an inflamed hair follicle or wart

It does not seems anything serious for sure

This is unlikely to give you any problem in future and if you want you can leave it as such

If you want to get rid of it then it can be removed surgically
