Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
This seemed to be muscle knot,which is a sensitive region of muscle that has tighten or contracted.
Weight loss is significant only if it is more than 5% in 1 month,more than 7.5% in 3 months or more than 10% in 6 months.
If you have significant weight loss inspite of good appetite and diet then go for biopsy of the lesion.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
