This could be a small cyst , it an be painful . If it red and painful, it could be a subcutanious ( below the skin layer )infection. This should respond to antibiotics and analgesics. Your local doctor will be able to help you out. Try local application of antiseptics/ spirit.

It sounds like you have a sebaceous cyst. See your local doctor and he will prescribe you medication to clear it up within a week.
