Are you 100% sure you got the entire tick, head and all?

It not uncommon for a tick bite to cause a small lump/bump just given the fact there was damage/penetration of the skin. For now keep an eye on it, and if it gets any bigger, irritated or what not, or if your dog starts to act different from the norm id make a vet appointment. Is your dog on all his shots and tick prevenative? Either way if your really concerned call your vets office and see if they feel you need to do anything.
Just for future reference (if you didn't know) the recommended way to get them off is to use tweezers and grasp it at the head as close to the skin as possible and pull straight out. And if you have any trouble getting it out or your dog wont let you, you can have the vets pull it out.

Mouth parts left behind or not, tick bites sometimes lead to infection, but most often do not. If some of the sucking mouth parts were left in while removing the rest of the tick, the likelihood for subsequent inflammation is a bit higher, but usually the body will reject what was left behind and eject it all by making a pimple-like structure that will eventually pop.
