Brief Answer:
Regarding itchy raised bump on leg

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the image.
It is a rough looking, raised, hyperpigmented bump. I think that it is most likely either a prurigo nodule or a dermatofibroma. Both of these are benign conditions.
I suggest an excision biopsy for confirmation of diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
