Thanks all. I was reading up on this and think I may only have a grade I tear.

Muscle strains/tears are graded according to the degree of muscle fibers involved.

Grade I: overstretching of a few muscle fibers with less than 10 percent actual fibers tearing. No palpable defect in the muscle.

Grade II: a partial tear of the muscle fibers usually between 10 and 50 percent of the fibers. A definite palpable defect in the muscle belly.

Grade III: an extensive tear or complete rupture of the muscle fibers. From 50 to 100 percent destruction. Very large palpable depression in the muscle. The muscle may be torn away completely. There is no possibility of normal contraction.

There's no defect in the muscle, and only a tiny lump. Judging by this, I think it's Grade A. HOPEFULLY!! Probably between a I and II. The surgeon will know more.
