User avatar Hi michigan,
If the area feels like it's in the skin itself this may be related to an epidermoid cyst. If the area feels like it's deeper in the tissue it may be related to your thyroid. Regardless of the cause have the area evaluated by your physician and refrain from squeezing the area as this will cause increased irritation.
