inside right above my ankle. It looked like my ankle was swollen but when i looked at it there was a lump about the size of a nickel so no it isnt hard to feel.The skin is not darkened and the only reason it hurts now is because i've been messing with it.

Thanks for the clarification.

It looks like a cyst or a callous(Calcium Deposits).Usually these are harmless unless infected.So nothing to worry about it unless it is increasing in size or getting infected(Pain,redness and swelling).

Till then leave it alone.

I hope this helps you
