Bump between the 1st Phalange and the 1st Metatarsal

Hello,

I have a hard bump on the inside of my left foot, more specifically it seems between my 1st Phalange and 1st Metatarsal- where the joint is.  It is oval shaped, and has a diameter of around 8 milimeters.  It is located not on top of the joint but a little bit down towards the inside of the foot.  

I have noticed the bump about 4 months ago, but disregarded it- now its starting to catch my attention more and more because it looks like it got a bit bigger.  

The bump itself does not hurt and i can move it around without any pain, but it is definitely attached to a part of those two bones (or the joint) mentioned above.

Please, let me know if this sounds serious and I should go see a doctor or it sounds like something common and harmless.

All input on this question is greatly appreciated.

Thank You.
