It looks like an abscess to me according to your description.
I would like to know the site on which the lump is there
Whether it is associated with fever or not

It is better to show it to your doctor and get investigations like CBC done.

Till then you can apply anti inflammatory and analgesic

Take care

Any further query is most welcome
