If it has not grown in a year and a half, it is not a matter to be concerned about. It may be a sebaceous/epidermal cyst and he can get it removed when he is good and ready. It will not affect your health. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health! Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines
