Hello. I have had a small bump on my side for several months now. It's slightly bruised-colored, somewhat hard, and painless to touch. It's also smooth and hasn't grown or changed shape since I've noticed it. I would say it's about pea-sized in diameter, though it only protrudes somewhat. Are there any bumps like this that are a symptom of something serious, or is it more likely something non-threatening? Thank you.
