In brief: Usually cyst
Small cysts can form from skin that is trapped in the area near a piercing.
If it is stable and not painful no treatment may be necessary, but if it is enlarging or painful should be examined.

It can also be a keloid- this is when your skin and tissue cells over react to healing- causing bumps, lumps near a piercing or cut.
