Bursitis can occur anywhere in the body where there is a bursa when inflammation causes the bursa to swell with fluid. The condition is often painful.
Bursitis typically causes a dull pain, tenderness, and stiffness near the affected bursa. Bursitis inflammation can also make the bursa swell and cause the skin around it to appear red and feel warm to the touch. Reference: Medical-Surgical Nursing; Brunner & Suddarth 9th Edition
From your description of your "bump" it is hard to know if this is your problem...........perhaps you should have your physician look at it if it continues to bother you.
