It sounds like something that should be excised for biopsy. That will give you a peace of mind. Good luck

As described, this "bump" may represent what is called a "lipoma", which is a benign tumor of fatty tissue. If it is a "cosmetic" issue, it can be easily removed, and a dermatologist may be an appropriate physician to consult.
