More specifics ;...: The described lump seems appearing off and on. To better deduce what it can be, please record its specific size, duration, ; interval of presentation with its sequence of event, and bring those to doc timely for review, analysis, more hx, physicals... So to figure out its possible DX for proposing reasonable rx. If it's as described, it most likely benign and harmless. But without direct look..
