If not red and not painful, then could be uninfected sebaceous cyst or lipoma (fatty tissue), possibly even lymph node (don't know where on chest you're referring) as long as it is freely mobile and not fixed/hard/matted down. Best to check w/your family doc for evaluation. ...Read more

Rather than wonder what it is, get it checked out. ...Read more
