    Small lump under the skin on cheekbone

    I have noticed a few days ago that I have a small lump-or hard bump under the skin on my left high cheek bone. It is about the size of a pea and it's painless. There is nothing visible from the outside either. Could this be some form of acne, or something else?

    ive had something like that before. it was like a pimple that never surfaced. i ignored it and it never went away, but never really got any bigger either. i left it for months.
    i got sick of it, and did something stupid - i picked it until it opened. i really do not suggest this.. because you could scar it or cause it to get infected.. but anyway, what was under it was a white plug.. sort of like how with regular pimples theres a tiny plug... but it was waaaay bigger. it took a few squeezes to get it all out. and it left a hole after i cleaned it out, and took a while to heal, even though it scabbed over quickly. but it DID heal.
    im not sure what to suggest, besides to look for a professional opinion. and mine was there for months, so i knew it wasnt going to go away unless i did something. maybe yours will go away if it hasnt been there for too long.
