In brief: Suspect muscle

This could be a cyst which may or may not be infected.
With this there could be muscle or bone or joint or combination with tendon and bursa involvement as part of the pain. Sometimes at a gym there's risk of infection. Sometimes if you look at the bump there may be a small hole that may be plugged indicating a possible inclusion cyst.
