Large hard lump near elbow, pain on squeezing, movable lump. Cyst formation?

I have a pretty big lump near my elbow on the outside side (the side that I would swing up to hit someone on the chin ) Its around 2 inches across and several cm high and feels hard. If I squeeze under it it hurts but i can move the lump around before it goes back to its initial position. Is it a cyst? should i go see a doctor?

Hello and welcome
The bump is a matter of concern if it is painful, increasing in size and causing discomfort in day to day life. The causes of the bump near elbow are brusitis (inflammation of the brusae), Cyst, Abnormal growth of the tissue, Injury or tendinitis.
Consult your doctor and yourself clinically examined. Certain investigations like FNAC may help you to get to a diagnosis. Follow the instruction of your doctor and get yourself treated.
