It doesnt hurt..no pain when it is touched or pushed on. it feels like jello when you push down on it..It is now about the size a half dollar maybe a little bigger...what should i do..scared to death to go to the doctor..

Hi, the lump could most probably be a lipoma. This is usually soft and has indefinite margins. Its a fat tumour and is benign. The other possibilities are sebaceous cyst or lymph nodes. If it is growing in size or if you are uncomfortable with it, consult your primary care physician, he may plan for a simple excision. Good Luck. Regards.
