Cyst of some type: Several things can cause it, there are deposits like lipomas, epidermal cysts, that are benign but can be painful. A common problem in that area can be a ganglion cyst. These are small benign growths that occur on tendons. They are all easily sorted out on physical exam. You should see a primary care doctor.
