General Surgeon 's  Response
As the lesion is very small,nothing to worry.
If it is growing rapidly,changing its colour/surface,becoming fixed ,painful then it is of concern.
If you have any doubt,Consult your surgeon.Get it removed and send the removed swelling for Biopsy(Histo pathological examination).
Based on the biopsy report,your further treatment will be planned.
But,it looks like a Benign swelling,not cancer.
Wish you good health
