Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
The small lump is most likely a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in a nerve) or a lipoma (localized collection of fat). Folliculitis (hair follicle infection) can sometimes persist. It could also be a small lymph node in response to a localized infection or dandruff. Please get it examined by your PCP. It does not appear to be any thing serious, however without examination cannot comment for sure.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Hi
Thanks for keeping me posted!
No, it should not be lymphoma or cancer. However as I said earlier, please ask your PCP to take a look. In all probability it is one of the things I mentioned earlier.
Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
