    Without actually examining the lesion, it's hard to say what it may be. However, a well demarcated (usually circular), non-tender, motile, fatty, "deposit" under the skin is usually indicative of a lipoma, which is a benign fatty growth. Why won't the insurance pay for the biopsy? Your peace of mind is worth more than the cost of the biopsy and pathology tests. Go to your doctor and tell them that you are willing to pay for the test out of pocket. You know you have a good family physician if they are willing to do the biopsy during a less busy time in their schedule, and just charge for a regular visit. The pathologist on the other hand... Anyway, talk to the doctor AND the insurance company and find out why they will not cover the biopsy. Could be something as simple as miscommunication as to the nature of the problem.
