Its an inflammation of the skin. There's no redness and I've had it a few days.
The lump is fixed and I haven't noticed a change in size. There's also no liquid or change in colour. I experience pain some of the time.
If you feel that the area is inflammed you may benefit from taking some motrin or alieve and see if the inflammation is relieved. I'm not sure if there there is an infection or a small abcess going on or something else since I'm not able to see this. You may want to put a warm compress on that area for the next couple days. If there are are no changes/improvement or if the lump gets worse please see your doctor. If you develop fever or chills see your doctor right away.
