Brief Answer:
It could be a hematoma or a tumor.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
This could either be a hematoma that is a blood collection or a tumor.
I suggest you get examined by a Surgeon to know what it is. Without examining you it is very difficult to say what it is.
You might require investigations like Ultrasound or MRI but first you should get examined.
Do let me know if there are other queries.
Take care.
