In brief: Thing on wound

This could be several things but only an examination can determine.
Otherwise, our guesses are akin to a carnival worker.

In brief: Scab

May simply be a healing wound.
Leave it alone and let it resolve. If you develop redness around it with tenderness and warmth to the touch, see a doctor.
