This may be a sebacious cyst, medicalize for an infected hair follicle that doesn't know when to quit. If so it is not dangerous and can be easily removed by a physician using local anesthetic. You might also try an hr or so of hot packs to see if you can make it burst and drain without medical assistance. I would advise you to drink a beer or two while doing this as it can be a little painful. Jill Angus
