hi lorraineabinger,
since you practice yoga it is often seen that such lumps appear, if these lump are infected then they become painful and after few days it disappears and due to pressure bruise appears.. it is normal just be careful that long yoga pressure works can cause them but it should not be infected.
take care and if again it appears consult a surgeon.
have a good day
