What insect/pest is this?

I am seeing some weird growth coming out from behind a wooden shelf in my kitchen. It looks like a cocoon or a round mushroom. I tried to scrape it out with a knife but it is hard. I mean, it looks soft and gooey but it is actually hard enough to be poked with the pointy end of the knife. I scrapped it off from the wall twice but it keeps coming back.


Could someone please tell me what it is and how to get rid of it? I am going to take out the shelf anyway but I don't want whatever it is to spread to other wooden things in the house.


Attached are few pics.
