It is better to see a doctor to know what is that bump, if it is painful then probably it is an infection which must be diagnosed and cured as soon as possible. If the sweeling or the bump is not at all painful but it grows fast or becomes bigger, it might be possible that it is a cyst and it needs to be removed as soon as possible.
