Hi dear,
The lump could be a cyst or a small growth from the bone (exostoses). Whatever it might be, its not a tumor. You need not worry about it. You just show it to a pediatrician, and be double sure that its just a benign swelling. Careful observation is more than enough. It will subside on its own.

Take care
