Pea sized lump : Under the skin, we can find lumps from an enclosed skin infection, non concerning fibrous changes, a neurofibroma, and several other things. Most of the time they are of no concern. Adult fibrosarcoma is rare. You should see your doctor, on rare occasions, a doctor may want to be sure and take it out for analysis.
