Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lump. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, folliculitis, cyst, abscess etc. With the description, this has a high chance of being an abscess, which would need to be surgically drained by a doctor for appropriate treatment. It would be best to have this evaluated by a doctor at your earliest convenience for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Thank you for the reply, I saw several comment from other people that had something that sounded similar and they were thinking they had some kind of fungist infection. is that a posibility? thanks again.
