I had one of these before that stayed around forever it seemed.  I went to the doctor and it was a staph infection.  I got antibiotics and it finally went away.  You can try putting neosporine (antibiotic ointment) on it to see if it will come to a head.  If not, I would see a GP.  Good Luck. I wouldn't worry about it being malignant.
