Red bump

Hi Doc,
I have a small red bump that has come up on my upper left arm - just over a year ago I noticed it. It''s about the size of naartjie pip. Around it, under the skin, it feels hard &  is about a centimeter all the way around the bump. It itches sometimes but is not painful. Is it worth a visit to the Dr? Thank you.
