Dear Friend,

From your description it appears you are having either a small pimple or inflamed lymph node.

Try taking a short course of antibiotic. If it still doesn't disappear you can get FNAC done on swelling to clear your doubts.

It would be much helpful for me to suggest if you could post an image of the bump here. You have a feature on the right side of this query page to upload images. You may utilize the same.

Do write back for follow up queries that you may have.
