Many things: A bump must be seen and examined in person to be able to give a better idea what it is or isn't. If it's worse, changes, or not improved in the next few weeks, go ahead to a doctur.

Is it impossible to break a titanium plate in your arm?

Dr. Joel McClurg
Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery
No: Plates and screws, and rods, and wires will all eventually break if bones don't heal regardless of what metal they are made of. Just like a wire coat hanger will break if you bend it back and forth enough times. Without bone healing the metal fatigues and fails if it gets enough cycles on it. If the bone is healed the chances of fatigue failure are basically zero.

Calm down: If you are using ice, great! elevate the extremity above the level of the heart. This will help with swelling. He you are not having difficulty with breathing (wheezing or trouble getting breath) are not feel as though you are going to pass out, not having hives or other major symptoms and not known to be allergic to stings, then relax. Take some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and observe. Otherwise see md or 911.
