18 Yr old male with strange bump on shoulder

At first I thought it was just bacne, but it doesn't have the white center, is a small (~1cm) bumpy, darker red than surrounding skin, painful bump. The surrounding hairs are noticeably darker, as in you can't normally see them but now you can. I tried to pop it (I know, I know.), felt it pop, but nothing happened. No dark center either. Should I be worried?

Just watch it, keep it clean, and don't try to pop it again. It could just be a sebaceous cyst.
