Brief Answer:
Not concerning

Detailed Answer:
Hi and Welcome.

This is probably small traumatic fibroma that occurs after hematoma under the skin becomes coagulated and hard.

It may hurt for short time but it will not cause problems in future and in most cases it disappear within within weeks.

Wish you good health.
