If it is soft,: mobile fluctuant or slightly dense, and does not hurt then it's most likely a lipoma. If you decide to have a healthcare professional look at it, that should confirm it. Of course there are other bad things that could cause a well defined lump on bone or under skin. Thanks for using HealthTap.
