Difference between nodules and papules?

I've read the shit on acne.org about them, I'm on accutane on day 38 now or so. And have been getting these bumps they're red but you CANNOT pop them, if you squeeze clear liquid comes out, they stay for 1-2 weeks.

My question is what's the difference about the 2?

And what do I have?

Can anyone post pics maybe

I think papules are tender and not completey hard while nodules are more like cysts ( hard to touch and not tender ).
