    Does the site feel warmer than same area on the other side? If so, that would indicate a infection that needs to be drained or lanced. The site could have healed over with some infection still going on.

    Yep...I would lance it and drain it. If it doesnt drain, then it is something else. You must make sure you lance it deep enough to reach through the outer enclosing tissue.
