Cyst like lump on arm, no pain. Taking antibiotics for jaw infection. Causes?

I have a cyst-like lump on my arm ...right in the middle of my tricep. It s under the skin, about 1/2 inch across and maybe 1/4 inch up/down. It does not hurt and can be felt but not seen on my arm. I ve been on heavy duty antibiotics for an infection in my jaw, so I don t think it s an infection. Any idea what this could be? Should I be overly concerned?

From history it seems that you might be having small

Nothing to worry.
if size increases or new lump is develped, then consult surgeon and get it examined.
Ok and take care.
