In brief: See a surgeon

A mass or lump that is painful and has developed similar swellings around it is certainly something that needs urgent attention.
The commonest would be some fort of infection that may be amenable to antibiotics. Otherwise a surgeon can drain it or remove it depending upon what it is.
