In brief: Sebaceous cyst

This is a typical sebaceous cyst, perhaps a fairly large one.
It's probably not infected now, and is harmless unless and until that happens. But it can be a pretty big deal if infection occurs. It can be treated with minor surgery to prevent recurrent accumulation, drainage, and infection -- probably by a dermatologist. Contact your doctor about a referral.
