This is almost certainly nothing to worry about and it was probably there before your holiday, brought to your attention now, by your sunburn.

You say it is under the skin, but can you separate the skin from the lump?

If it is worrying you then see you GP, but it is as likely as not, nothing to do with the sunburn.
I have several, doctor said they are cysts and told me there was nothing to worry over, little knotty lumps that you can feel, move slightly. As Sqad says if worried see the doctor, but i doubt he would say any different.
