Black hard lump on arm, severe pain on scratching, diagnosed to be a pimple. Right?

I have a black hard lump on my arm . It doesnt hurt at all when i press it but when i scratch it by accident it hurts a lot. Its roughly the size of a small button. I went to the doctor and he told me that its just a pimple that has not surfaced and the only way itll disappear is by removing it which will leave a scar . Do you think it is what my doctor says it is?
