The description you have given it sounds like Boil. Is it painful?
Please do not squeeze it. I think the best step will be to attend
A/E dept in hospital for check up and treatment. It could be the
early infection and the pus has not formed yet.
It does not sound like pyogenic granuloma.
Kindest regards
