Lipoma: It could be a benign fat tumor called a lipoma. The may get quite large and can be surgically removed. You should go to your primary care doctor to be examined to make sure it is nothing more severe. Infected lymph nodes can present similarly but are painful generally.

Hmm: Could be a cyst , lipoma or lymph node. If not extremely painful I would wait and see your primary doctor for a full check up. Good luck.
