Yes, get him to another Vet asap.  Get that thing taken off or at least drained.

Benign cysts and lumps can eventually turn cancerous. Get it OFF of him.

Did the vet take any fluid out and have it checked?

I would have it removed, and if your vet did not suggest this at the onset I would have the work done by another Vet.
I had a knot removed from one dog before in the same place, it was originally caused by and injury and the hair had become in grown, it healed fine and no scar. 
Things left too long can turn into bigger problems.
Whatever it is have it removed.
