How to cure a small bump above my nail cuticle ?

I have a small bump right above my cuticle that just popped up put of nowhere. I was wondering if it is a wart or maybe something under it causing an infection. I went to a nail salon to get it filed down and that didn t work. I dont think its inflammed cause it doesnt feel hot when i touch it but when i do press down on it, it becomes sore . Any ideas on what it is or how to cure it?
