Lump on elbow, itchy, hurting, liquid comes out on squeezing. What i need to do?

Hi. I have this strange hard lump right on the tip of my elbow . I just noticed it today because it began itching. Once it didnt itch anymore, it felt sore. I thought I had just scratched it too hard. But then I noticed how bad it hurt to lean on my elbows. It was almost as if someone was sticking a needle in it. I finally realized there was a hard lump there. And if I squeeze it, a clear liquidy substace will come out. Could you please tell me what this is and what I need to do about it?
