This kind of bump can be a swollen lymph node, a sebaceous cyst or a boil. Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection along with other numerous causes. Sebaceous cyst is usually painless but can become painful if infected. Then antibiotics are needed. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle be staph aureus. Apply warm compresses on the lump and some topical antibiotic cream. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist.
Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
