Bump on my spine, near my hairline

I just noticed a small lump ON the middle of my spine, on my neck about an inch below the hairline.  Its the size of a marble, and not noticeable without palpating the area.  Its painless, and moves very slightly only when I relax the muscles in my neck.  Any suggestions on what this may be?  Is there even lymph nodes near that spot? 24 yr old smoking male if that helps at all.

Probably a lipoma, harmless lump of fatty tissue. Doctors usually tell by one look and touching it and usually not associated with pain. Usually only ever removed for cosmetic reasons or if impingeing on mechanics. Some medical journals indicate the mass' may be inclined to grow over sites of underlying injury, however.
