3Rd Month - Should I Have This Breakout?

So, I have had persistent mild/moderate acne for about 9 years.

I'm going to be 20 next year, and my derm prescribed Accutane. Apart from the dryness, I've been incredibly happy with the results. I didn't even get an initial breakout - she started me off at 20mg, then 30mg, and I'm 3 weeks into my 40mg dose.

The thing concerning me is that I still have some "bumps" under my skin that never surface, and just recently got a painful/huge pimple reminiscent of my mild - moderate acne days.

I'm not sure if this is normal, or something to be concerned about considering my skin has been almost flawless (minus old redmarks and a few small, non-painful zits) for the past three months! I'm not sure if the surfacing of a deep, painful one is a sign that something is wrong. :/

Any ideas/experiences?
