Lipoma/Lymph node: The description sounds most like something called a lipoma. We all have them & gen find them by accident, if ever. They are small fatty balls that are soft & easily move. They are usually painless & if they don't bother you we don't bother them. Another poss is this is a lymph node, espec if it can be a little painful. Espec poss if you had a recent cold or ear ache. Grows/painful get it checked.
