lump on the leg

hi, i found one small lump on my leg under the skin, i ran the day before so my leg was sore that's when i notice a small but very hard lump that you can defianly tell its a lump (between the knee and the foot). I just don't know if its very serious or just something simple because i have never heard of someone having cancer or a tumor or anything like that serious with their leg.
So just wanted to ask someone as to what is it and what should i do should i be worried?

I had a lump just above my right ankle for several years.  For along time the only time I knew it was there was putting my socks on.  9 months ago it started to feel warmer and grew a very small amount.  It was 1.5" round and about 3/8" tall.  It was filled with what felt like fatty substance so I went to the ER.  It was diagnosed as a "sebaceous cyst".  They lanced the mass and squeezed it like a zit.  The substance that came out was "keratin".  Possible causes in my situation could be past injury or an ingrown hair.  Hope that helps.
