Ganglionic cyst: Is a possibility but it could be a number of things. Any lump or bump deserves a doctors visit and possible biopsy.

Bruise?: Did you injure your foot anywhere? Does it look discolored? Maybe it is a bruise. If it is red and hot consider a skin infection like cellulitis. In any case it is hard to know for sure without looking at the site. Please visit your doctor for definitive care.
