If this painful , most probably it is a hair follicle infection.It needs painkillers and a course of antibiotic.If it is not painful at all then most probably it is a cyst due to blocked skin gland.This is generally harmless unless it increases in size, in which case it has to be surgically removed.

Hope this helps.
