In brief: Probably a cyst

Lumps such as these,appearing suddenly without any other associated symptom such as pain or fever etc, may be benign such as a bony growth or a sebaceous cyst.
Regardless, it needs to be examined by a doctor to make sure there is no other test to rule out other medical condition.
