In brief: If it hurts...
...It's probably a localized infection in a sweat gland or oil gland.
If it doesn't hurt, it's probably an angioma, which is a small collection of blood vessels; so don't squeeze it! if it's the latter, it will bleed like stink. Localized infections usually go away; angiomas don't, but treatment is easy with laser or electrocautery.
