See your doc: I think because of the placement and that it sounds like it might be getting bigger (yes?) you may want to have your doctor take a look at it for two things- to diagnose it better that I can without a picture of it, and to treat it either with a cream or possibly aspirating whatever liquid is in it to get it out and stop it from growing. Best of luck to you!
