In brief: Could be

34 is young for a skin cancer but if you are very fair-complected and have spent a lot of time in the sun or a tanning bed, it is possible.
Basal cell skin cancers have a shiny, translucent appearance like a drop of pink wax on the skin. To be safe, show it to your doctor and he or she can advise you before it gets bigger.

In brief: Possibly

A "shiny lump" or lesion on the skin could be a form of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma but it could also be something non-malignant.
General skin cancer warning signs include increasing lesion size, irregular border, change in color, bleeding, flaking, crusting. A biopsy may be necessary.
