In brief: See below

This is a problem that necessitates a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. This will allow him/her to examine you, ask specific questions.
And possibly order tests to find out what's wrong and what to do to help you.

In brief: Scar

Dr sparaco's answer is correct, but probably the lump is scar/calcified hematoma that takes "forever" to resolve.
These are annoying but generally harmless.
