Don't worry. This small swelling may be a cyst (apparently a sebaceous cyst). If it is a sebaceous cyst indeed, it is harmless by and large. If it is not giving you any trouble, I would recommend you to observe it for some more time (possible 3 more months or so), and get examined again by your doctor if necessary, and subsequently you may plan further action.
