I’d be willing to bet that’s a Haglind’s deformityor better known as a “pump bump.” It’s a bony growth that forms on the heel in response to the pressure from wearing heels. If its not hard, then it’s more likely a callous, like the previous poster said.

Does it move? I know that’s weird… but a callous or corn would move with your skin (although that’s hard because the skin on your ankle is tight, so there isn’t as much movement there).

But like @honeybee33: said, it could be a bony growth or scar tissue. A bony growth of course wouldn’t move around.

Whatever it is, it looks pretty harmless! As long as it doesn’t cause too much pain that is.

Its more than likely a corn but it could also be a hard cyst. Use a corn cushion when you wear your shoes it see if it goes away on its own or not. The friction and rubbing probably caused it and by alleviating that it may get rid of it. If it doesn’t go away on its own a doctor should be able to remove it for you in his office with some local anesthetic so you don’t feel anything and a small surgical knife.
