1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

If it has been there for 4 years and is not growing, it is most likely a lipoma (benign fatty tumor) or a sebaceous cyst.
Either can be removed surgically if it is bothering you.

In brief: Lump

Need to get it evaluated by a doctor. Could be something that can be easily removed.
