In brief: Must see it!
I would love to be able to reassure you but this requires evaluation by your doctor as my initial thoughts could be a cyst, an abscess, a hair follicle granuloma, or an enlarged lymph node which may indicate an underlying concerning condition.
Please get it checked if it lasts > one month.
