There Are many things it can be from a heel spur, to a bursitis (fluid filled sack )to a thin heel pad and you feel the heel bone more easily, to other masses, both benign and not benign.
I suggest you go to a podiatrist have it checked up and I am sure you be x-rayed and possibly go for an ultrasound investigation. Only when there is a diagnosis can a treatment plan be discussed
