In brief: Hard to say

It is hard to say if the lump is cancerous without seeing it.
A couple of key things to watch: has it changed in size or color, has the pain characteristics changed, is there bleeding or ulceration, are there signs of infection, is there redness or drainage? If the answer to any of these is yes, you should have it checked out by your family doctor.
