Small lump under my skin on cheekbone

A few days ago I noticed that I have a small tiny lump or hard bump under the skin on my high left cheek bone. It is about the size of a pea, and it is painless. It's not visible from the outside either. Could this be some type of cancer???

Re: Small lump under my skin on cheekbone

Ashley, I don't know how to answer that. But I will say it could be a # of things. From a cyst to a boil to a possible benign lump. BUT the thing is you noticed it and I would go have it checked out. My son had one on his cheek that finally turned out to be a boil and.....Eiiiiiw! Yeah! Go let someone look at it ok?
