Lump on leg when tensing muscles, soreness. Any idea?

Hi I have a small lump near the top of my right leg when I tense the muscles. I do quite a lot of training and it appeared recently. It feels sore when I work out on it by doing squats and things like that but not normally when I m just walking around. The lump is right on the top of me leg, do you have any idea what it could be?
