welcome to kealthcaremagic
it may be an ecchymotic condition ,colection of blood in subcutaneous tissue due to trivial trauma some times go unnoticed except the lesion
it will subside on its own
it will be better to get a check up with physician and take tests to rule out any bleeding disorder

A bruise n bump r due to minor bleeding inthe tissue below skin.u might ve injured urself accidentally .but if such a bruise appears without any cause n repeatedly u need to get blood tests done to rule out bleeding disorder or vitamin deficiency.
So visit a doctor for diagnosis n till then u ensure a nutricious diet rich in citrus fruits n leafy veg or take a multivitamin.
