Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Since it is not blue or black, then not likely bleeding related.

Lump can be due to the trauma to the skin layer.

Can be a scar tissue related commonly --a harmless condition.

Maybe painful sometimes.

You can upload a pic here for further assistance.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
