So, leave it alone..: A bump of years discloses its benign nature so it would be better off to leave it alone without giving additional irritation. Fact: Life is a process of constant struggle to cope with reality, certainty, & uncertainty of daily living for survival, growth, & continuation. But, if still in doubt, see Doc for possible surgical removal to witness nothing is free and everything comes with a price.
