other examination findings, seems like a lipoma from the image. but depending on its consistency it can be many other things hard nodes- suspicious for malignancy, cystic- dermoids,sebaceouscyst, tb cold abscess. needs usg neck with fnac if solid.

please do excision biopsy fnac is sometimes not diagnostic and does not give a lead looks more like lymph node so my vote for clinical examination proper history and then excision biopsy in case of any doubt

Swelling in the nape of neck can be lipoma as it is the m/c site, lymphnode swelling, lymphatic cyst, traumatic cyst, rarely Mets...kindly advice fnac, to be precise guided fnac and plan accordingly... Thank you

A lipoma which requires surgical excision. F.N..A.C will confirm the diagnosis
