lump after splinter was removed

I was recently in a park when i fell into a bush and got a thorn/splinter in my elbow. after getting it out i realised later on that a sore bump had formed there. What does this mean?

It either means you didn't get the entire splinter out, you'll know because it will still hurt and you'll see it, or it's just the body healing.

Thank you i think it was just my body healing because since then the bump has gone down but thank you anyway
