Ther is a small bump and bruise on the top of my foot. Any advice or ideas about what it could be?

Patient

Q: A few days ago I woke up with a small hard bump on the top of my foot. There is also a light bruise. I don't know what could have caused it unless I hit it in my sleep. It doesn't hurt too much to touch it but it hurts a lot when I walk or move my foot a lot. I've kept ice on it but the lump doesn't seem to go down any. Any idea what this could be or how to make it feel better?
