It was not very clear from the picture but from the symptoms ,it sounds like a sebaceous cyst. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac or cyst below the surface of the skin and fills with a fatty white, semi-solid material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis.It is usually painless but can become painful if infected.
If painless apply warm compresses on the lump.Generally no treatment is required but if they become painful then it means they are infected,Then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required.If it starts growing in size or becomes painful or itchy,then pls get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Hope it helps .Take care and pls do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
