This is the kind of problem that can not be diagnosed online (even by a veterinarian). It might be something as simple as an impacted anal gland that just needs emptying, or it might be more complicated and be an infected anal gland that needs antibiotics AND draining OR it could be a subcutaneous tumor if it is not in the anal gland that might or might not be malignant.

Chances are it is something relatively minor but unless someone actually looks at the location of the 'bump' it is impossible to know.

Your veterinarian should be consulted on this one.
