In brief: Scar tissue

Probably developed some scar tissue. Should get an xray to make sure.

In brief: Could be bone.

Assuming you struck the back of your elbow, it could be a bone chip.
The hook of the ulna bone is in that area, and can commonly be chipped, by striking it. If it is not a bone chip, it may be a scar nodule.
