Skin lump causes: Lumps felt under the skin can have many causes from simple things like swelling and bruising from local trauma, benign cysts of oil glands, benign localized fatty tissue collections ( lipoma), infections ( boil or abscess), to more serious causes up to and including cancerous masses. Any persistent, enlarging or painful lumps should be evaluated.
