Removed cyst in arm through surgery, developed a small painful bump. Solution?

I just had minor surgery to remove a suspected cyst in my arm pit. After it was removed I began to notice a smal brown raised bump that hurts and stings to the touch. It is about an inch and a half above the incision made by the doctor. I have no received the results of the surgery yet it was February 7. I see the doctor on the 19th to remove the stitches.
