Sore tender elbow with white lump on tip

Patient

Q: I have a pain in my elbow it happened yesterday while I was mashing turnip I felt a pull in the elbow area when I got up this morning I noticed a little white lump on the tip of the elbow and when I bend my elbow it feels like the muscle is being pulled. The elbow is sore to the touch and I can not put any pressure on it. Wondering if this is temporary and just need to rest it or should I consult my family doctor.
Thank you in advance
